Medieval Murder: Changing crime prevention in the late Middle Ages

Crime prevention later middle agesStart this enquiry with a real murder!  Can your students speculate what happened next? They find the answer by reading an engaging story to establish how much crime prevention changed in the Later Middle Ages?

We have come to conclusion that students in secondary schools do not read enough!

That is why we have purposely built into our Crime and Punishment lessons some accessible stories for students to read either alone or together.

Here they each highlight the key themes in crime prevention to help them see how much changed. This new information is then compared with Norman crime prevention to see how how much the system changed.

You finish by seeing whether your students can knock down the wall of misconception.
