The Ancient World to 1450
As long as there have been people, there has been crime. We can look at records dating back quite a long way, and discover the type of crimes people were committing, how they were caught and the punishments they were given. Using court records and law codes, we can see how attitudes towards crime have changed over the years. For example, harsh punishments for particular crimes mean that people at that time felt those crimes were the worst. This is something that has changed quite a lot over the past 2000 years. In this title, we will consider the Romans, who occupied England for several hundred years. Then we will look at England in the Middle Ages, firstly under Anglo-Saxon rulers and later, Norman kings. Some aspects of crime and punishment stayed the same, while others underwent striking changes.
