But the new exhibition at the Ancient High House in Stafford (see photo) is all about just that – murder.
In it one can see and read about famous murderers in Staffordshire, including William Palmer (the Rugeley Poisoner), and famous victims like poor Christina Collins, who was murdered while travelling on the canal.
You can even see the black cap worn by the hanging judges at Stafford, and grisly artefacts like stuff the condemned prisoners were allowed.
It runs until mid-July.
I’m sure it will be a huge success!
