Examining crime and punishment in the past can serve a valuable purpose. Exploring these histories can help us understand the very different nature of British society before the modern era. It can also make it easier to understand today’s concerns about violence and problems in the justice system.
Crime and punishment from the Tudors to today
Studying history, especially titillating topics such as murder and mayhem, is often interesting for its own sake. However, examining crime and punishment in the past can also serve a valuable purpose. Exploring these histories can help us understand the very different nature of British society before the modern era. It can also make it easier to understand today’s concerns about violence, ‘anti-social behaviour’ and problems in the justice system.
