Crime in London: An investigation through time (KS4)
Object handling, drama performance and gallery activities
Museum of London
This study day begins with a performance of ASBO!, an interactive play that looks at anti-social behaviour, interweaving past and present scenarios from a variety of perspectives and inviting debate on different approaches to punishment. Students will then delve further into London's past using artefacts to create an overview of common crimes, factors affecting crime and changing attitudes and beliefs through key periods of London's history. Finally, using free activities from our website, students will explore the galleries examining common themes and factors relating to the context of crime through London's history.
