Convicts were transported to Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) from 1803 until 1853, and many were still serving their sentences in the 1870s. This multimedia collection of 16 digital curriculum resources includes sketches, prints, photographs, film footage, a learning object and a traditional song. It is organised into four categories - transported to Van Diemen's Land; the convict system in Tasmania; punishments; and Port Arthur.
