Thanks for posting that up for me How.

Elizabeth Yardley is regarded as at the top of her game for Criminology, so we were honoured to have agree to come and share her knowledge.

In recent times a more academic look at Ripperology has emerged which i feel could work extremely well with both, seasoned researchers and general crime enthusiasts , if handled correctly and without ego.

We have begun discussing ideas to merge these worlds to the benefit of everyone and we may see a new exciting re-brand of our events coming soon.

The goal, as always, is to gain a wider public understanding of the Ripper subject and to have it taken more seriously in the world of criminology and away from stuffy closed door attitudes of the past. ( Change is good )

Our approach to this over the last few years has been well recieved by the "Majority" and can (and will) get bigger.

So if you guys wanna come and see what all the fuss is about please check out

20 spaces remain for Liverpool 2017 ..... when they're are gone .... they're gone.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Amanda Harvey Purse has studied the Jack the Ripper case for over twenty four years. Turning her attention to the history of the City of London Police fifteen years ago, she became a tour guide and researcher for the City of London Police Museum.

She has studied various other Victorian and Edwardian Crimes leading her to be a researcher for documentaries and TV Shows for the BBC, History Channel and Channel 4. She is also the author of an Jack the Ripper fictional (but factual) series of books called Jack the Ripper's Many Faces, Dead Bodies Do Tell Tales and The Strange of Caroline Maxwell.

She is the author of the e-book series, Victorian Lives behind Victorian Crimes and has written various crime related articles for Magazines, Journals and Newspapers.




Now, she has written her first fully factual book, called Jack and Old Jewry: The City of London Policemen who Hunted the Ripper, in which she hopes to make the officers who had to cope with what 'Jack' did and go back to work the next day, seem more human than just names mentioned in books, newspaper articles or police reports. With that in mind, Amanda will be talking about a few interesting events that are in this book.

The Jack the Ripper Crime Conference team are pleased to present in Liverpool this September -

THE MAYBRICK WATCH





Is this the watch of Jack the Ripper ?

Most true crime enthusiasts and Ripperologists are all too familiar with story of the Jack the Ripper Diary, reportedly written by Liverpool Cotton merchant James Maybrick.

The Diary was unearthed in 1992 and for the last 25 years has been the subject of fierce debate.

However, often over looked, is a far more intriguing and puzzling story of the James Maybrick watch.

Discovered in Liverpool soon after the diary came to light, it bears the scratched initials of five Ripper victims as well as the words, "I am Jack" and "J Maybrick" across its centre.

Did this watch come from Battlecrease house at the same time as the Diary ?

The watch's owner, Albert Johnson had it analysed by the University of Manchester, whose results appear to offer some encouragement.

With the aid of electron microscopy, Dr Stephen Turgoose found minuscule brass particles embedded deep in the engraved initials. The brass would have been deposited by the tool used to engrave the words and the corrosion on the particles suggests the work was not done in modern times.

The watch was also sent to Bristol University's interface analysis centre. Dr Robert Wild concluded the markings could have been very, very old and were certainly not new.

The experts and public opinion remain divided.

This September the Maybrick Watch will be on display for all the delegates of the 2017 Liverpool Conference plus a special Public viewing to be arranged on the Friday of the Conference.

A special presentation on both the Diary and the Watch will be held , exploring the 25 years of mystery that has surrounded these items and a panel of experts will reveal what modern research can finally tell us about the origins of arguably the most debated about artefacts in Ripperology.

We wish to thank the family of Albert Johnson for granting us this special opportunity to display the watch to all delegates of the 2017 Liverpool conference.

SPACES FOR LIVERPOOL 2017 ARE VERY LIMITED. FOR BOOKING AND INFO VISIT

Thanks How for posting this.

Its an honour to be holding the Conference on the 25th anniversary of the Diary coming to light in the actual city where the story began plus getting to see one of the most important artefacts associated with the story. It will be a real bonus to all delegates. Especially those who have seen the Diary many times before, now they get to finally complete their experience.

The public day which will include , documentary , presentation and panel discussion has attracted media interest so expect news of that soon.

Its gonna be one hot ticket .... as always.

...... and we still have loads more to announce.

From Rick Cobb :



The Jack the Ripper Liverpool Crime Conference 2017 is pleased to announce our next speaker -

KEITH SKINNER

This year, after a long absence, we welcome back to the official Jack the Ripper conference, Mr Keith Skinner.

Regarded as one of the most highly respected experts in the world on the subject of Jack the Ripper and certainly regarded as the most influential researcher of the field, Keith Skinner will share his knowledge and research into the whole Maybrick story at the 2017 Conference in Liverpool this September.

As far as Ripperology and true crime goes, Keith has a fantastic resume:





In 2001, he worked on the film From Hell as an historical consultant. He also worked as a historical researcher and consultant for the documentaries The Hunt (2001) and Hunt For Jack the Ripper(2001).

He has also co-authored some of the best books in the field of Ripperology and true crime, namely:

The Ripper Legacy: Life and Death of Jack the Ripper by Martin Howells and Keith Skinner (1987)
Peasenhall Murder by Martin Fido and Keith Skinner (1990)
Scotland Yard Files: 150 Years of the CID, 1842-1992 by Paul Begg and Keith Skinner (1992)
The Jack the Ripper A-Z by Paul Begg, Martin Fido and Keith Skinner (1992, 1996)
The Jack the Ripper Whitechapel Murders by Keith Skinner and Kevin O'Donnell (1997)
The Official Encyclopedia of Scotland Yard by Martin Fido and Keith Skinner (1999)
The Last Victim: Extraordinary Life of Florence Maybrick, the Only Woman to Survive Jack the Ripper by Keith Skinner, Anne E. Graham and Carol Emmas (1999)
The Ultimate Jack the Ripper Companion by Stewart P. Evans and Keith Skinner (2000)
The Ultimate Jack the Ripper Sourcebook: An Illustrated Encyclopedia by Stewart P. Evans and Keith Skinner (2002)
Jack the Ripper and the Whitechapel Murders(Document Pack) by Stewart P. Evans and Keith Skinner (2002)
The Ripper Diary by Seth Linder, Caroline Morris and Keith Skinner (2003)
The Scotland Yard Files: Milestones in Crime Detection by Keith Skinner and Alan Moss (31 Aug 2006)
The Complete Jack the Ripper A-Z by Paul Begg, Martin Fido and Keith Skinner (2010)
Jack the Ripper: Letters from Hell by Stewart P Evans and Keith Skinner (2002, 2004, 2013)
The Victorian Detective (Shire Library) by Alan Moss and Keith Skinner (2013)
The Crime Museum Casebook: An Encyclopedia of Scotland Yard's Investigations by Alan Moss and Keith Skinner (2016)

This September Keith Skinner joins the official Jack the Ripper conference in Liverpool to re-visit the alleged Diary of the Jack the Ripper.



Together with a select panel of experts, Keith will reveal the intense background story surrounding the research that has been conducted into the Maybrick Mystery saga and finally reveal the definitive story of one the greatest mysteries in Ripperology.

25 years after the Maybrick Diary first captured the imagination of the world , it now comes full circle, back to its city of origin.

Can the ghosts of the past finally be laid to rest ?

Whatever happens , I think we can all agree this will be one hot ticket.

To snap up the remaining tickets for Liverpool 2017 at the Marriott hotel this September, please get a deposit or payment in asap at www.crimeconference.com

It really would be a crime to miss it !!
