Hanged at the scene of their crime
by Steve Poole, Professor of History and Heritage, University of the West of England, Bristol
While Wiltshire gives an impression of sleepy rural calm, it has been the scene of impassioned events that have helped shape our nation’s history. This volume chronicles the rural rebellions of the past, and the often savage response by the rich and powerful who used the gibbet and the noose to suppress the poor.
   The book also recounts the story of two extraordinary local women. Dame Florence Hancock was a pioneer of early trade unions, leading a major strike in Chippenham and

later becoming the first woman president of the TUC. Angela Gradwell was one of the country’s first women solicitors, a dedicated socialist and peace campaigner, sports woman and musician.
   This is the second volume of local history produced by White Horse (Wiltshire) Trades Council, who have brought together the voices of academics and local trades unionists to tell the stories of ordinary working people engaged in extraordinary events.

This extraordinary book is based on a series of talks given at a local history day-school in Chippenham in 2014
