Carol Liston presents "Untold Stories - Women Transported from Britain to NSW"
Adjunct Associate Professor Carol Liston AO will be our guest speaker via Zoom on Saturday 20th November 2021.
Carol will discuss the crimes committed by women transported to New South Wales between 1800 and 1835.
Too often, convict women are described as poor and desperate - but many were experienced thieves whose crimes showed organisational skills and daring, and who probably had comfortable lives – until caught and transported!
Carol will discuss how to find this information online, without the expense of a trip to Britain.
