The latest from WhitechapelRealTime (@WChapelRealTime). Experience life in Victorian London during Jack the Ripper's 'Autumn of Terror'.
Miss Alexander's insight:

A chance to discover about Jack the Ripper through real time tweets in a project called @WChapelRealTime.

Since the start of the year, historians, some calling themselves Ripperologists, have been pulling together documents and photos that paint a picture of happenings at the time.

 

The Ripperologists will tweet using hash tagged names of people involved in the case including Det Con Frederick Abberline - a prominent police figure in the investigation.

There will also be tweets from reporters at the time, and local people, for example workers from the nearby Shadwell Docks.

Miss Alexander's insight:

Three examples of 'Jack the Ripper' letters that are stored at the National Archives. The police received a number of different letters. Read the transcripts to access what the writers claimed. This helps give an insight into the difficulties the police had trying to discover the authenticity of the letters without the forensic science of the 20th Century.
