This exhibition features a display of convict bonnets, children's activities and narratives about the lives of female convicts sentenced to transportation to Australia. The exhibition is part of Roses from the Heart project, an Australia wide initiative that pays tribute to all convict women sentenced to transportation.
The publication is a database of the 1600 female convicts who came to Newcastle. It includes narratives about the lives of 70 women and provides an in depth look at their lives and the history of the local area.
