On Tuesday mornings I work on a project which focuses on crimes that were committed in the 1820’s. This is for Warwickshire County Council.

I have to understand the details of the crime, it’s location and the name of the of the perpetrator. I must transcribe the text into modern language.

I find it very interesting because of the language and I enjoy reading about social history. It points me to other sources like Great Expectations (Charles Dickens) and William Shakespeare.
