History - Crime and punishment in the early modern period

Today we will be studying the early modern period which covers from the Stuarts until 1800.
Look at the timeline on the slides.
The period started off with a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Look at the information about the gunpowder plot on the slides.
There was also a Civil War during this period which was also due to religion. There lots of crimes related to religion at this time, such as witchcraft.
Look at the information on the slides about crime and punishment at this time, e.g. the increase of
smugglers, highwaymen and poachers and the reasons behind this. Explain that punishments became harsher and that a new punishment of transportation was introduced.
What do you think was the biggest change in crime and punishment during this period?
