Lecture no. 11 from the course: Forensic History: Crimes, Frauds, and Scandals

Criminals of the Wild, Wild West

Taught by Professor Elizabeth A. Murray | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Follow the stories of three legendary 19th-century outlaws from the golden age of the American West: Wyatt Earp, Jesse James, and Alfred Packer. It’s a lecture packed with prospectors, cowboys, bad boys, lawmen, and impostors—all of whom help shed light on the past (and present) of forensic science.
