About Trial By Media with Alex Adamson
We are delighted to welcome Alex Adamson with a talk entitled “Trial by Media”. Alex, who is the author of 'Murder, Poaching and Lemonade: Crimes and Court Cases from Nineteenth Century West Lothian', will talk about the press reporting of crime during the 1800s. This was a period which saw many changes in Scottish society, the way in which crimes and criminal were perceived, and the ways in which they were punished. A study of newspaper accounts of court cases opens a window for us into the lives of our forebears and their changing attitudes to criminality.
This talk will talk place on Thursday 27th February at 2pm in the Museum Community room.
