History KS2/KS3: Victorian Villains

Stories of 'young Victorian villains' and the strict justice system that decided their fate, using trial testimony, census records and dramatic reconstruction to recreate the moment when these children's lives were changed for ever.

These photographic images of these youngsters give a poignancy and authenticity to their stories and bring their tales to life.

Suitable for teaching History and Social Studies at KS2 and KS3 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National Levels 2 and 3 in Scotland.
