Case-Study 1- What were the pros and cons of transportation as a form of punishment?
1. You are George Bonfield, the missing son from Source 5. Write the letter home which poor Anne Bonfield is so anxious to hear from.
2. Design a "Snakes and Ladders" board-game for transportation. Start by listing the "snakes" - things that could go wrong for you as a convict sentenced to transportation. Then list the "ladders", the things that could go right. The sources give plenty of examples of each.
Then design and decorate the Board. What will you put at the end of the game - the destination for the winner?
