Throughout history, there have been criminals notorious for their crimes and judges famous for upholding the law. This fantastic collection of specially commissioned photographs shows how these crimes were committed, detected and judged. Since Cain murdered Abel, societies have developed laws that dictate the ways people should behave. However, every land has its lawbreakers, from the assassins of Ancient Rome, to the Internet pirates of today. Although crime has continued, the means of detecting crimes have become more efficient since the development of forensic science. See how traces of blood, dirt, or skin, and strands of hair or fibers have led to the identification of a criminal.
