Crime and Punishment History Projects
This tour investigates the social context of crime and the developments in policing throughout history. Through a series of activities and workshops students will be encouraged to hone their debating and problem-solving skills. Students will have the opportunity to handle original historical artefacts relating to crime and punishment at the Clink Prison Museum and get straight to the story and head into the heart of the area where the Jack the Ripper Murders occurred with our 2-hour guided Jack the Ripper Walking tour from Aldgate East Underground Station. The programme is designed to meet the National Curriculum’s GCSE History Schools Project specifications.
