I have always had a keen interest in the 19th Century, particularly Victorian crime.
Back in 2004, I took a course on Crime and Punishment in the 1800's, and from there my interests grew.
The first case that had me gripped was Jack the Ripper.
After reading up on various Ripper suspects I came across many other interesting crimes that had occurred around the same time.
Here I will write about things from the 19th Century that interest me, including some of the cases I have researched.
I hope that you will be equally drawn into the murky world of Victorian crime.
A place where women are forced to walk the streets at night, and children are inprisoned or taught to steal.
Brutal murders are frequent and the law is almost non existant.
As well as the Victorian era, I also enjoy writing about cases that have occurred right up to the present day.

Crackers were invented in 1847 by London confectionary Tom Smith. Inspired by the French sweet 'Bon Bon' Tom went on to create one of the most popular Christmas traditions in English history.

Have you ever wondered where the first Christmas card came from? Many Christmas traditions originate from the Victorian era. Henry Cole was too busy to sit and write

what toys and games did Victorian children play with? Well it all depended on whether they were rich or poor. Rich children would play with clockwork train sets or beautiful china dolls
