5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant insight into prison life, 21 Jun 2008

This review is from: Prison Life in Victorian England (Paperback)
I couldn't wait to receive this book after ordering it, as I uncovered some crimial ancestors when tracing my family tree. This book is very informative in pictures as well as words, and has answered my questions about what life would have been like for my 5th Great Grandfather and his brother. The details from records, and stories from convicts make this a great read for family historians and anyone with an interest in prisons in the ninteeth century. Exellent work Michelle, thank you very much.

A well researched study which has resulted in a book on this periferal subject. Very informative. Easy to read. Colours in one of those spaces that tend to remain empty, particularly when concerned with family history resesrch. Simple fact of life in all it's detail.

As I am part of a Victorian prison re-enactment group I am always looking for information to make our presentations more authentic.
The information in this book has been very useful to us, especially giving us a lot of background knowledge to use when we are talking to members of the public.
