Summary
As the place where prisoners, male and female, awaited trial, execution or transportation Newgate was Britain's most feared gaol for over 700 years. It probably best known today from the novels of Charles Dickens including 'Barnaby Rudge' and 'Great Expectations.' But there is much is more to Newgate than 19th century notoriety. In the 17th century it saw the exploits of legendary escaper and thief Jack Sheppard. Author Daniel Defoe who was imprisoned there for seditious libel, playwright Ben Jonson for murder, the Captain Kidd for piracy were among its most famous inmates. This book takes you from the gaol's 12th century beginnings to its final closure in 1904 and looks at daily life, developments in the treatment of prisoners from the use of torture to penal reform as well as major events in its history
