Scotland Yard's History of Crime in 100 Objects, Paperback / softback Book

Scotland Yard's History of Crime in 100 Objects Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Explore Britain's dark criminal history through the fascinating objects that have been hidden away in the Crime Museum at Scotland Yard, a collection that, although world-famous, is so sensitive it is not open to public view.

Each object tells its own story: the briefcase with a concealed syringe owned by the notorious Kray twins; the gun Ruth Ellis used to murder her lover David Blakely; a burnt-out computer from the Glasgow airport car bomb; a picture from the property of Dennis Nilsen of the grisly drain that was blocked with human body parts; and the gun that Edward Oxford fired at Queen Victoria that failed to assassinate her.

Updated to feature new objects that have entered the collection since 2015, Scotland Yard's History of Crime in 100 Objects is an absorbing, sometimes shocking and often disturbing journey through criminal history.

Peer within to experience a unique insight into the crimes and criminals dealt with by Scotland Yard.
