The National Lottery Heritage Fund is supporting the ERM CIC project Crime and Punishment which works with Watton Junior School and Pathways College looking at the changing laws relating to Crime and associated Punishments over the centuries.
Here, a few of Pathways College students spent a morning at the Norfolk Archive Centre / Norfolk Record Office at Norfolk County Hall, an incredible source of Heritage documents. Here they learnt about the art of Archiving, saw 'behind the scenes' in the strongroom and encountered quills, parchment and hand made papers. Visit Norfolk Record Office site.
Pathways also visited Norfolk Heritage Centre at the Millennium Library in Norwich. Here they saw and wrote about news reports and broadsides about notorious murderers and criminals of Norwich's past. A backstage tour added to the excitement! Visit Norfolk Heritage Centre site.
