A study of the inquest records of Tasmania
thesisposted on 2023-05-26, 20:53 authored by Hofto, Shirley A
The inquest records of Tasmania dating from 1828 are stark revelations of human tragedy. From them it is possible to gain knowledge of the legal processes operating, vivid details of the life and times, and insight into the way in which sudden and accidental deaths were viewed by coroners and others seeking to make life in Tasmania safer for its citizens. This study samples these records, setting them in historical context and highlighting what I consider is the interesting data revealed.
