Crime and Punishment in the Archives – Sarah Christian, MNH Library Archivist

Sarah’s talk explores themes of crime and punishment using resources from Manx National Heritage’s Library & Archives, as well as other online resources to produce case studies of individual criminals. We are always seeking explanations but can research overturn some expectations? What circumstances lead to law breaking behaviours? What happened to people afterwards? In studying crime and punishment, can we get a flavour for what the Isle of Man was like in days gone by? Sarah seeks to answer some of these question with a PowerPoint presentation followed by the opportunity to look at the mugshot books.

Time: 2pm    Venue: Manx Museum Lecture Theatre                     Max 60       FREE
