Event description

Description

Join expert Prof. Thom Brooks for a whistlestop history of prisons. Find out how the earliest prisons started out as holding cells until a king's representative could administer local trials to decide punishments, and then how the concept of keeping prisoners in a cell actually became the punishment. Find out about our efforts to reform, including rehabilitation during Victorian times. Following the talk will be a special opportunity to handle items from the Prison and Police Museum Collection.

Talk 2-3pm / Tickets £5 per person at The Workhouse Museum, Ripon
