Abstract

The last sixty- five years has witnessed a growing interest by historians of crime in the so- called Bloody Code of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Most, if not all, of the existing historiography on the Bloody Code has, however, focused on the south- east of England and the Old Bailey. The aim of this article is to examine the broad trends in the operation of the Bloody Code in Wales between 1805 and 1830, the last quarter of a century of the Wales Courts of Great Sessions.
