Outlaws and Criminals

Posted in Weird People


The British have a peculiar relationship with the law. On the one hand known for their love of order and the long tradition codified in common law which has since been exported to the world. On the other hand, perhaps no other place so fetes its villains. From Robin Hood to Dick Turpin, Jack Sheppard to Raoul Mote, those who defy the law often become popular figures of acclaim, whose exploits live on in legend long after they themselves have returned to the earth.
