What was life like for a Victorian child criminal?
Photographs, reports and drawings from our prison records are used to explore the lives of Victorian children who were classed as criminals. Pupils investigate Victorian attitudes to crime and punishment, and explore the cases of children imprisoned at Wandsworth Prison in the mid nineteenth century.
This session supports schools focusing on a thematic study in British history (beyond 1066).
Connections to the curriculum: History, English (spoken language and writing – composition).
