The Tudor period is famous for its high-profile executions, with Anne Boleyn, Thomas Cromwell and Mary, Queen of Scots all ending their lives on the scaffold. It was an age, too, where most crimes were punishable by death. For those sentenced to the abject misery of the Tudor prison system, life must have seemed bleak. 
Our conversation will look at crime and punishment in the Tudor period. What crimes were committed and how were they investigated? Once arrested, what was the trial system like for felons and what were the punishments meted out? Tudor Crime and Punishment will provide a vivid social history of this less salubrious side of British history.
Led by an expert on the Tudor period, Dr Elizabeth Norton, this conversation will consider Tudor Crime and Punishment. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased idea of just how brutal the world of sixteenth-century crime and punishment could be.

The details offered by Professor Norton were fascinating, though grim! The photos of documents and images from the period were helpful. The only problem was the text translation of her talk, which mistranslated many words, including important vocabulary.
