Ever wanted to know about the gorinesses of the Roman punishments? What was the most common crime?Well It was theft ,there was a reason for it  most of the times this happened ,which was everyday,the most common reason was because the majority of them were poor and had no money and because they had no money they could not buy food for their families so they risked their self by stealing.Another crime that happened way to much was murder.  Murder happened way to much than it was supposed to. If you count be heading and hanging as murder, than the murder level has just raised up by a lot.One of the punishments was you had to were wooden slacks or shoes so it was harder to escape ( this was for slaves).

Crime and punishment from Romans to World War 2


Crime. What is crime? In this piece of writing , this  question will be awnsered while we look through 5 different time periods. Throughout this writing you will also find out about punishments from these 5 eras : Roman times , Anglo-Saxon times , Tudor times , Victorian times and The World War 2 times. These date back to around 27BC but crime and punishment have been around way longer in the past. Depending on the crimes someone committed they would get something minor or something horrific. An example of this could be: in  the Anglo-Saxon time when you were guilty of stealing twice or more then your hands would be chopped off. Due to poverty, in most of these times , there was a lot of theft and a lot of ways to punish it.

Roman crime and punishment

In the Roman areas, there was quite a lot of crimes due to the overcrowding in Rome , which meant that there were a lot more dark dangerous places the had criminals in them. The Roman period had a lot of crimes but the most common ones were theft and . Theft was usually the cause of poverty. Another common crime was murder; it did not happen quite often but when it did happen there were serious consequences to the murder (this could sometimes result in death or extreme pain). In other places , like villages , there were special people called Vigiles these people would stop any crime and deal with it . The common crimes were  whipping or fines.

Anglo-Saxon crimes and punishments

In the Anglo-Saxon times ,there were many deadly punishments and even in some cases trial by ordeal ( making you walk across hot coals or other painful activities , they would wait for 3 days and if it was healed then you are apparently innocent and let go but if not then they kill you). For less serious crimes there would be a fine and around this time prison wasn’t an option because they did not have prisons. In villages shouting for help would not be common because it was one of the ways that criminals would get caught. If there was no body shouting, then the Anglo-Saxons would have a meathod to catch the criminal and it was called tithing. 

Tudor crime and punishments

In the Tudor times the rules were not set fairly. A straight example would be the  scolds bridle , this punishment would be for if girls gossiped , nagged or even tried to voice their own opinion , which was quite unfair, and If that wasn’t bad enough , it would destroy your mouth if you tried to talk because there was a piece of it the went inside of your mouth that had spikes on it and only the man of the house could take it off. Due to homelessness , the most common crimes were theft. People would see those people and they would catch the homeless person and take them to get a punishment. If you were poor then the most common crime would be sold into slavery for begging  from people. Another common punishment would be being branded (branded means burnt) with hot iron.

victorian crimes and punishments

In the Victorian times their crimes and punishments varied a lot. There crimes could go from a small pickpocketing to a horrifying murder. And Their punishment , they could range from being sent to Australia for hard labour to being hung. In this time of Britain , the most common punishment was hard labour and this was a consequence for a common crime. Surprisingly , the most common crime was small but sneaky , it was pickpocketing and this occurred due to transport. Criminals were caught pickpocketing by someone telling the victim of the pickpocketing (the person who is being pickpocketed) that a person is trying to steal. Hard labour (the punishment for committing a common crime) can vary from many different things. These could be  the crank or the treadmill and this happened because the victorians thought that if criminals worked hard that would not commit crimes anymore.


World War 2

The world war 2 lasted for about 6 years, which meant that there would be a lot of crimes and punishments. Unlike all of the other times , at this time they had police and the police would stop most of these crimes from occurring. The most common theft during the war was theft. Theft in the war was due to rationing and food shortages in homes. People were often caught by the police and were put into hard labour. Hard labour would be due to being caught stealing. Different punishments could be imprisonment ( being put into prison for a certain amount of time) or having to pay a fine. Paying fine may be hard if someone was stealing just to try to eat for the day but if you didn’t pay the given fine in a certain amount of days then you would probably go to prison.

Have you ever wondered how crimes and punishment have changed though out of the ages? In this writing there will be detailed crimes  and punishment from the Roman area to the modern Britain. Through out all these times and even further back in history people have always committed crimes and faced punishment for those . For example, in the Roman time if you committed patriude (killing you further), you would be put in a sack with snakes and thrown in the river to drown.

Roman crime and punishment 

The most common committed crime in Roman time was theft, people only did this as they were poor, hungry, dis-highdrated and freezing. Manifest is were you have a witness and non-manifest means you haven’t got a witness. If you stole you would’ve of being given a fine four times  the value of that item and they had  a time limit when your have to pay it on that day : like in a week, although after that week if you didn’t pay the fine you would’ve of being pushed of a cliff. Since this had happened there were a lot more because as there were many people who were homeless and poor and had no money to pay for food or clothing they would steal.

Anglo Saxons crimes and punishments
In the Anglo Saxons time the most common crime committed was also theft but it was a bit different it was called petty theft, a lot of people done petty theft to feed their families, stolen a small amount of cash. In Anglo Saxon in the villages there were people watching you and if they caught you stealing, they would cry and scream for peoples attention so they can attention and they would be witness ( they would scream so they can get u caught by more people). The punishment would be a fine or you would have your hands cut off .

Tudor crimes and punishment 
In the Tudor time the common crime was begging, people would’ve of begged for a money, more food, or a job. If you had begged a person they would make you  go to court and they would’ve of being guilty because you shouldn’t of  begged in Tudor times. They would’ve of whipped you and because they had thought it was very disrespectful they would. If you were a man and you knew the whole Bible you would be innocent.

Victorian crime and punishment 
The most common crime in Victorian times was pick pocketing because a lot of people would be poor or homeless so the item they had stole they would sell it and get the money . If you gotten caught  you would be sent to the king and you would be given a punishment.If you were a kid you would’ve of being shipped to Australia and you would’ve of being put at down the bottom you might drowned as your at the bottom of the ship and you would of been very uncomfortable because so many people were there as well, when you had got there you would have to work there(you were not aloud make friends or talk to each other because it was a very strict and horrible time).

World War Two 
The most common committed crime in ww2 was murder , this happened a lot because there was loads of wars. There wouldn’t be a punishment if you were innocent but if you was guilty you would’ve of being put to death ( since so many people had got killed and it would be impossible for the police to investigate all them death).They would have to work alot because there were many wars and they would have to train and get stong.

Kyanna, you have worked hard to create informative paragraphs and you have used several points of parenthesis.  Very well done.  Read through, uplevelling spelling errors or where some sentences read awkwardly.

Even though despair has always tried to take over the world, hope has always won! Did you think if crimes and punishments have bean the same throughout the years? In this text, there will be writing about crime and punishments throughout the years. Throughout the years people committed millions of crimes.

roman crime and punishments

During the time 500Bc and 400AD, the Roman Empire ruled most of the world. Did you know that the most common crime was theft? Between the 500Bc and the 400AD the army became much more powerful than ever. The city it self, became crowded Packed with people from different citys. Did you know that the most crimes are theft and murder? The most common crimes were whipping and death penalty. In the Roman times you would not have to proof that your innocent, if you were important people would believe anything you said and if you were not important then they would not care what will happen to you. Did you know that there was no police in the Roman times? If you tried to kill one of the the people in the Roman Empire you would get executed/ a death punishment. The more serious your crimes were the more serious your punishments were, but not all the time. Did you know that being poor was a crime? Did you know that the most popular in favour  punishments were crucifixion and whipping. These punishments were cruel but you have not seen all of the history yet.


You may wonder if I’m going to be talking about the Anglo-Saxon? I will be! Crimes and punishments were a bit different but they were very harsh. There was a new crime called treason. You may wonder how people were punished for treason, people were punished by death. Small crimes are punished by fines payment. There is death punishment too.In the Anglo-Saxon times if you committed theft more than once your hands would get cut off. If you would commit theft once you would get a fine. The Anglo-Saxon would leave deseasions to the god, if they would not know if your innocence. They would make you pick up a rock from flaming hot water and if you would have a mark on your hand that would mean your guilty.


The Tudors where horrible, there is thousands of horrible punishments from that time. If you were a girl this would not be a great time for you. Girls were punished for the smallest things like talking back. Woman did not have any rights, they could not work. If you were drunk in public they would make you were this thing that beer would be in which would be incredibly hard to walk, eat or any thing. Did you know that some Tudor houses are steel  steal in England? If someone thought your a witch they would put you on this thing that if you drowned you were not a witch and you would be witch if you would not be a witch but any way you would die. The Tudors were all about humiliation they would make every person who committed a crime well known.


The time of the Victorian’s started on 1837 to 1901. A lot of things happened back then. The punishments were like prison some of them at least. Did you know that in the Victorian times police began. Police were poorly paid. People would make their kids work for extra money but the got paid at least 1p a day. The people that had police did not trust them at all. Did you know that the first ever policeman’s name was Robert Peel? If the people did not like you they would send you off to Australia. The punishment for theft was getting sent to Australia. You may ask why would they get sent to Australia, they got sent to Australia because no one knew what it was they knew nothing about it. They sent people Australia until people started going there for fun and too see what it was like. Then came a new punishment called the work house. If you committed theft then you would get sent there to pay off the thing they stole but it’s not as simple because you would have to pay for being in the words house. Beryl barely anyone got out of there.

wold war 2

The wold war 2 started 1939 and ended at 1945.There was more rights in that time. Although people had more rights, people got bombed too. The amount of murder went up a lot. The police were every were, people started trusting the police. People invented lights and things to help the police with things.There we’re many broken houses because of booming.Although, there was a lot of broken house people made more and they fixed the broken houses. There was big looting problem (looting means bombing.) There was millions of people that did during the wold war 2. There was new rules; which were not that harsh and the ones with in the history.

Crime and punishment in Britain. LC: To use different sentence structures depending on the formality of writing .


Throughout history the Romans , Tudors , Anglo-Saxons/Vikings and Victorian Era. They all took over Britain and I will be telling you the atrocity and punishments that they set when they ruled Britain. Have you ever thought of what punishments used to be like? All of the retribution , throughout the history were considered as bitter, or cruel . Romans and all different era’s had draconian rules to follow and a lot of crime. All punishments from the past are different than current days.


In the year , between 500BC to 400AC the Romans stayed in Britain and ruled Britain , The Roman Empire ruled most of the sophisticated  world . During this time , they were quite authoritative and well trained to fight. Most of the crime happened because people were poor and they barely ate . There were lots of ghetto and there was lots of starvations because people were poor which meant they didn’t eat . Another reason that people were robbed and theft was the most common crime was because there was a large community of 45 million people . The punishments for crime were harsh such as Beatings, lashings with a whip , exile and death. A  punishment for embezzlement would be a fine you would have to pay 4 times more value of what you stole.


The Anglo-Saxon period was from 410 to 1066 , It stretched over 600 years in Britain. The early settlers kept to small tribal groups , forming kingdoms and sub-kingdoms . Crimes in Anglo-Saxons were being drunk but the most common one was Petty Theft. The punishment for petty theft was: a fine range from 200 to 1200 shillings.
If you stole more than once you would have your hands chopped off .  If the jury couldn’t decide who is innocent or guilty they would use the ‘trial of ordeal’ which meant that they would make the people to step on hot coals and if it didn’t heal in 3 days you are found guilty.

Tudor Times:

Tudor times occurred between 1485 and 1603 in Britain . People stole from poor people to get food because deprivation happened and people couldn’t afford food. ‘Parish Constables’ were like policemen and they were responsible to keep peace and to catch the criminals . The most common crime in Tudor times was treason , the punishment for treason was: behading  . Women would be punish with a scold’s bridle for gossiping . Different punishments were whipping, branded or even locked in stocks .

Victorian Era

In the Victorian Era , the most common punishment was pickpocketing and the punishments for that were not so bad . The Victorians believed that working hard would stop the criminals from committing crime . Policemen were hated and poorly paid but they did reduce crime. Another punishment you would be able to get if you pickpocketed would be death by hanging, they would hang you until you die.  The Victorian era period was between from: 20th June 1837 to 22 January 1901.

World War II

World War Two happened from 1939 to 1945 . The most universal crime was murder, rape , robbery , burglary and theft. Policemen had duties . If you committed a murder you would be put to death. For black market you would get a fine or imprisonment. If you committed rape you would be punished with something arranged to arrest to execution . Rape happened in the mid-1945 . The government was so worried that if you committed theft you would be sent to death penalty . During the war, reported crime rose in England and Wales to 478,394 from 303,711 .

Crime and punishment in 5 different eras

LC: To use different sentence structures depending on the formality of the writing.

Would you like to educate your mind, well look no further! Ever since the beginning of society, crimes and punishment have existed. I will discuss 5 eras of time throughout Britain history and explain crime that happened and the punishments. Through scientific and historic evidence, we have found out theft has been the most common crime. But the consequences for theft has varied a lot throughout history. The 5 eras of time we will analyze will be: Roman times, Anglo-Saxon times, Tudor times, Victorian times and during WW2. These times span across 43AD to 1945AD 
and I will be explaining the crime and punishment during this time in chronological order.

Roman period 
During the time span of roughly 500BC to 400AD, the Roman Empire ruled most of the world. Their army was very powerful so it was no surprise that in 43AD Romans conquered England. Punishments were dealt with red-handed criminals. For those who did not get caught, the witness or the one who got effected with the crime would try and find them. They would either go alone or ask a friend to help them. The punishments heavily relied on the persons wealth or status. For those who were poor or did not have much of a status or not at all, they had more severe and brutal punishments. However if the suspect was a wealthy and noble man, the punishments were less painful but depended more on the money. A common punishment would be a fine but most criminals did not have money as they were committing the crimes because they were poor. If you did not have the money to pay that fine you would get killed by either them pushing you off a cliff, into a river or tied in a sack of animals (including dangerous animals) and thrown into a river. Overtime punishments got more painful as the population grew and the Romans intention was to discourage other criminals. The most brutal crime was crucifixion.

Anglo-Saxon period
During the Anglo-Saxon period, which approximately spanned from 410AD to 1066AD, crimes were a lot less common. Most people lived in a village and very few lived in towns, so everyone in the community knew each other. Major crimes like treason against the king demanded serious punishments like hanging. Whereas small and petty crimes like theft would lead to a fine. Anglo-Saxons thought that if a regular criminal got their hands or legs cut off they could not commit to crime. So they made it so if someone committed crimes regularly or more than once they would get their limbs cut off. There was also a system put in place so if the jury could not decide if someone was innocent or guilty they would have trial by ordeal. This was when a person got severely I injured and within 3 days if the bruise didn’t heal they were guilty. It was thought that god knew if someone was innocent so he would heal the injured spot. Before the system of weregild (the currency that was used to pay off fines) was put in place; the king allowed the victim or victims family to wreck their own justice on the criminal.

Tudor times
In Tudor times, there were many crimes. Most inescapable and leading to death no matter what. Most of the crimes were unreasonable since the criminal did nothing wrong or caused no harm to anyone or society. One of these crimes included witchcraft where if someone has a cat and was mysterious they were considered a witch. The punishment for this crime was the dunking stool, where the witch was dunked into water and if the suspect died they were innocent. But if they survived they were considered guilty and the punishment was death. So either way you would die for doing nothing. Fines were not as common, most crimes resulted to the Death Penalty. One of the most common punishments was hanging, this usually happened when someone committed treason, murder or theft. The most well-known punishment was execution. It was when the criminal got chopped with an axe. Most noble and rich people got this punishment instead of hanging because it was quick.

Victorian era
Throughout the Victorian era, hard labor was the most common punishment. Many Victorians believed that having to work very hard would prevent criminals committing crime in the future. Hard labor also gave money to the people in charge. There were some unreasonable crimes including; begging and being poor. Victorians believed being poor or begging would not be a great role-model for their kids. They thought if people got money for free their kids would do the same. Their was a system going on; the rich was getting richer as the poor was getting poorer. Many people needed money for food and water or clothes to survive out in the cold. Either if you committed treason or small theft most criminals were killed by death. This could be by hanging or some other punishment. During the eighteenth century, crime was at its highest, there was a great chance of being robbed or murdered outside.

World War 2
World War 2 was fought in 1939 to 1945, mostly everything was destroyed. Lots of houses and shops were bombed in the war so it made looting and robbery become more common. Since mostly everything was destroyed, there was no lights in the towns or city’s, increasing crime. Crime dramatically increased as people were in shambles and had nothing. Theft and murder were super common everywhere. Since the war was still going most criminals had no punishments. This made one-time criminals more regular. Once the war dived down a bit. Punishments like prison were now starting to be adjusted. Most criminals were fined or had a prison sentences. The police force increased since the war but looting was still common. If guilty of murder you could be sentenced to death still since the death penalty only stopped in 1964.

An excellent report,  Victor. You have used a good range of different sentence starters, good use of the comma to clause in your sentences and you have chosen and uplevelled key vocabulary to engage your reader too.

Have you ever wondered how crimes and punishments have changed throughout the ages ?In this writing:there will be details of crime and punishment from the the Roman era to modern Britain. Throughout all they times and further back in history. People have always committed theft most throughout the years 

Crime and punishment in Roman times

From the year 43 to 410 the Romans ruled Britain . Punishments in this time were very deadly even theft could end up which you dead. (It is proven that theft was the most common crime in history) During Roman times crime was very unequal . Some of the crimes that were used back then are still used to this day so are some punishments. Back then you were lucky to survive a punishment. A lot of punishments were public which meant other people could see.


Crime and punishment in
the Anglo-Saxon times

The Anglo-Saxons began in 410 AD. During this time, punishments were not  meant to kill you they were meant to make you stand out. Such as  is if you murdered someone you would have an M branded on you so people know you have killed someone. If you committed treason you would get a death penalty.


Crime and punishment in Tudor times

During the Tudor times punishments were all about pain and killing. Whether you committed a crime and they couldn’t decide if you were guilty or not you would have to walk across burning hot coals. Then you would be left alone for 3day if you’re feat wouldn’t heal you were guilty and you would be killed. Most of the punishments were public and some punishments include the public being able to hurt you.


Crime and punishment in the Victorian times

In the Victorian times a large amount of people were poor so children had to work. At the age of 10 you were a adult. If you were young and fit you would be sent on a damp wet boat and you would be shipped to Australia. If you got to Australia and the boat wouldn’t sink or broke you would have to work at a work home it was miserable when you turned 18 you would be let out. But you would probably go back because you wouldn’t have any were to go.


Crime and punishment in WW2

In WW2 ever one was important so if you committed a crime you would go to jail for a short amount of time. If you were caught selling things on the black market you would pay a fine and depends what you were selling you could have been imprisoned . During WW2 a lot of places were bombed.

Good factual information, Michal.  You have worked hard to vary your sentence structures, with some correct commas within these sentences.  You have chosen some key vocabulary too to support your writing.

Do you want to learn about all of the ages? Explore the crimes and punishments throughout history. I will write about the crime and punishments in the Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Tudors, Victorians and World War 2. All of the crimes are very similar, however the punishments are very diverse. For example, if you committed patricide (killing your father) in the Roman times you would be put in a sack of snakes and thrown in river.


The Roman Empire ruled England for roughly 500 BC to 400AD. There was no police so people would ask there friends to help them catch a criminal. The punishment for murder would be death and the punishment for treason would be death or be imprisoned. If you accused  someone the Vigiles would hunt you down and give you a punishment. They would deal with wrongdoers such as thieves and slaves, who ran from ther owners. Did you know the Vigiles would put out fires because there was no fire brigades. The emperor was protected by the Praetorian guard. When the Romans left Britain the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings raided.


The Anglo-Saxons ruled England for roughly 410BC to 1066BC.There was still no police so people would shout for help. If you committed murder you would have to pay 100 shillings but if committed a crime twice you would have your hand chopped off. If the judge could not decide if you were guilty or innocent then you would have trial by ordeal. Trial by ordeal is when you step on burning hot coal or when you put your hand in boiling water to find a stone. If you your feet or hand heals in three days you are innocent because God saved you because your not guilty. Interestingly, children are considered as adults at the age of ten.Did you know that when the Anglo-Saxons left the Tudors came to Britain.


The Tudors rule from 1485BC to 1603BC. The punishments were all about public humiliation. For example, a punishment could be the scolds bridle, which stops you from talking by having spikes on your tongue.Another punishment is locked in stocks , which locks you in a uncomfortable position for a long time. This is what they look like.

A punishment for being drunk in public could be put in a barrel of beer.If people were accused of being a witch they would be dunked into a lake and if the drowned they weren’t a witch but if you floated back up you used black magic so you would be burnt at the steak. Once the Tudors left the victorians ruled Britain.


Victorians would have public hangings and people would sell food while they get hanged. The first policemen were introduced and they were called Peels.Criminals would be transported to Australia. You would have to be on a cold damp boat for six months. Surprisingly, most of the people where as young as nine years old. A lot of people died on the way and if you survived the journey you would go to a workhouse. A workhouse is a place where the homeless people went for a roof and food :they had to pay 50 pounds. The workhouse would let them work for money but they only earned 20 pounds. If you left the workhouse you would have to come back because you would not know a thing about the wild animals of Australia .

World War two

The war lasted for 7 years. It was between 1939 and 1945. The most common crime was theft but world war 2 changed that to looting because lots of buildings were bombed. The punishment for looting was a fine or a short prison sentence. If you were caught selling on the black market you would be fined or imprisonment. The murder was more common so the consequence could be death.  There still was police and police duties increased because of the amount of crimes committed. New laws were introduced. For example, air raids, blackouts and rationing. There was not many woman officers and the police were called blackout bobbies. They were called this because they made sure that no light from houses and shops could be seen to stop German bombers from flying overhead. Children were evacuated to the countryside. This is what a German bomber looked like.

The crime and punishments have changed a lot throughout history. There are new punishments, which are fair ,for example murder would not be death it would be a lot of years in prison. There’re also lots of machines to prevent crime. For example, CCTV because they would have footage of the horrible crime so they would be found. There are lots of new crimes as well.For example, speeding and car theft.


Very good range of information for each era in history.  You have researched this topic well and I can see you have chosen specific vocabulary choices to suit the purpose of the writing.  Well done Theo!

Crime and punishment in the history of Britain.

Monday 17th January,2022

Lc: To use different sentence structures depending on the formality of the writing.


Have you ever thought about crime and punishment in the years? Well today I will be explaining the changes throughout the years. In this piece of writing you will see the crimes committed. There will be lots of diverse periods such as, Roman times, Anglo Saxon times, Tudor times, Victorian times and Word war 2 times. Some were brutal and some were a bit less. We will begin in the 500bc.

Crime and punishment in the Roman time period.

During the 500bc till the 400bc the Roman Empire ruled half the word. Rome became over-crowded this caused criminals to get away in the crowds. Murder and theft became very common. comon. Due to the amount of crimes, the romans decided to pick out some vigiles. Vigiles were very important as they put out fires, saved people and stopped crimes. There were about 7000 people in the team (only men). The crimes were always dealt with -unless you got away-. The punishments gwere  ?? based on your status someone that was rich would have a smaller retribution  than others. Theft was the most common crime was theft as people were poor to the amount of people. The most common punishments were monetary fines and whipping. Murder, on the other hand, was dealt with seriously. The punishment was being thrown off a cliff, buried alive or being thrown into a river. However the worst punishment was used for Treason the punishment was crucifixion. Let’s move onto the 410AD.

Crime and punishment in the Anglo Saxon time period.

Beginning in the 410AD, the Anglo Saxons took over and ruled Britain. During this time period, they lived in villages and hamlets. Every village had crimes that have been committed. The most common crime was still theft, the Anglo Saxons added leaders to each village. If there was any trouble caused the leader would deal with it. Crimes such as theft was a fine or a whipping. For treason or murder the punishment would be death penalty. However, if they could not decide if you were guilty they would perform trial by ordeal. Trial by ordeal was decided by “god”. You would be made to put your hand in boiling water or step on burning coals. They would give it three days if it was magically healed you would be found innocent. Now let’s talk about the 1066AD.

Crime and punishment in the Tudor time period.

Beginning in the 1066AD, when the tudors took over they dealt with crimes seriously. The most common crimes were still stealing. However, the people who the criminal was stealing from was expected to catch and bring the criminal to court. The punishment was whipping. Even the most smallest crimes had punishments. When gossiped you would have a scolds bridle on your face. The tool stopped you from talking and inserted spikes into your tounge tounhge. Witchcraft also has a punishment. The dunking stool would be used, if you died you were innocent if you floated you would be burnt to stake. If you committed treason you would be on the rack (stretched). As you can see this time period was very critical. Now we will speak about the 1837AD

Crime and punishment in the Victorian times.

Beginning with the 1837 AD, the Victorians took over Britain. They slowly developed into towns then cities. Many people began to work in                     factories factoreis. The most common crime was still theft and stealing;however,the most common punishment was transportation. In this punishment people were transported to the corner of Australia. They were transported by ship and it took approximately 8 months. Many people died on the way and some survived. The Victorian’s realised that there was many crimes. Due to this, they made a group of people named police. They saved many people and prevented prevnted crimes. If you committed murder or treason, your punishment would most likely still be death. These could be, getting hanged or getting sent to hard working labour and would probably starve to death. Let’s talk about something different now. Let’s start at the 1901AD.

Crime and punishment in word war 2 time period.

The most common crime would be looting, the crime was committed commited because people had to run and hide from the war above ground.
