Life & Death in a Victorian Gaol
I will be in authentic costume and he will tell of the life in a Victorian gaol. Discover what the term "hard labour" really meant. Learn the difference between a prison and a gaol and between a convict and a prisoner. Hear all the grisly details of how both capital and corporal punishment was carried out.
The presentation will be illustrated with items from the Victorian penal system which the audience is encouraged to handle. There will be a static display for perusal.
This presentation has been featured on Radio Suffolk.
