For the last 20 years, Charlotte has worked as a criminologist in universities, teaching and researching how prisons and probation work. While working on a project about how prisoners are shown in fiction, she came across the North Shields Edwardian police mugshots in the Tyne and Wear Archives.
Charlotte is intrigued by how the criminal justice system dealt with North Shields’ offenders 100 years ago but is more interested in why people had a brush with the law.
Charlotte is delighted to be working with the Heritologists, so that her research will find an interested audience who, she hopes, will be able to add to the stories she’s uncovered.
