From August to November 1888 a series of brutal and notorious murders in Whitechapel, London, were committed but the culprit was never brought to justice. Dubbed ‘Jack the Ripper’ by journalists, the case changed the ways in which crime was reported in newspapers and was extensively covered. This day course will explore why the murderer was named 'Jack the Ripper', the links between the five key murders, and the potential suspects. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
