Welcome to my blog, which explores Crime and Punishment during the years 1700-1900.

I will be covering controversial and engaging topics ranging from prison reformation, to female convicts and love tokens, while also focusing on the works of authors such as Oscar Wilde and Charles Dickens. I aim to provide interesting and useful insight into the personal experiences of prisoners, with the hope of gaining some understanding of life as a convict and the importance of this topic as a whole.
