Victorian Era - Law And Crimes Worksheet
Victorian Era – Law and Crimes worksheet for your students to complete.
About this worksheet: The Industrial Revolution had a huge impact on Britain, and along with a population boom, this meant that poverty increased, and so did crime rates. Victorians were very worried about the increasing crime rates and instigated harsh punishments to try and deter people from committing crimes. Hanging, imprisonment, hard labour, physical punishment (like being sent to the stocks or receiving lashes) were popular forms of punishment. Capital punishment was still being used in Britain, but unlike previous eras it was only severe crimes like murder and treason that were punishable by death.
