Transported for Life: a lottery?
This seminar focused on those convicts considered some of the worst to arrive in Van Diemen’s Land: the 780 women who were convicted to transportation for life. Presentations examined the sentencing process, the origins of the ‘lifers’, their convict experience and the lives that they built post-sentence.
