Whitechapel Real Time

 

August 31st 2013 marks the 125th anniversary of the first Jack the Ripper murder and yet still the case remains unsolved.  Whitechapel Real Time aims to portray Victorian society during 1888 in an accurate and engaging way, placing this tragic series of events in a wider context.

The mystery surrounding Jack the Ripper has been erroneously fuelled with images of darkened streets and figures in cloaks recounted by storytellers and portrayed in films and TV.  The Whitechapel Real Time project seeks to peel back the myths and tell the ‘back story’ of the real people of Victorian London. 

The aim of this project will challenge contemporary stereotypes and provoke debate on key issues such as social segregation and press sensationalism.  Using today’s social media to tell the story mirrors the way in which the news ‘spreads like wildfire’ across London and throughout the country in 1888.

All the content from the Whitechapel Real Time project has been thoroughly researched using our expert knowledge and resources ensuring the project has been conducted in a dignified, respectful and historically-focussed manner.

Jack the Ripper: The Suspects       



Jack the Ripper is the ultimate whodunit. The Whitechapel Murders of 1888 remain unsolved and hundreds of theories have been suggested as to the killer’s identity. However, many of the suggestions naming the infamous Ripper remain ill informed and, quite frankly, ludicrous – until now! The authors of this book are all members of The Whitechapel Society, the world’s largest organisation for the study of Jack the Ripper. Each has spent many years researching a particular suspect and the results of their latest, cutting-edge investigations are published here for the first time. Based on indisputable facts and concrete evidence, the cases put forward in this collection allow readers to decide exactly who they believe is the man behind the myth. With each chapter discussing a separate suspect in detail, this book is the ultimate guide to the most famous criminal investigation in British history. 

 

Jack the Ripper: The Suspects is available as a 99p ebook or with 50% off the paperback between Friday 13th September and Friday 20th September.
