She was born in Trinidad, and came to Britain with her parents in She gave it to some friends to try, and the rest they say is history. Within three months she had convinced Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum and Mason to sell her sauces. She also got her products onto the shelves of the 7 top supermarket chains — among them Safeway, Tesco and Waitrose.
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Social Science History Even today, coroners can determine only in rare instances whether a deceased infant or newborn was suffocated or died of natural causes Knight No reliable test can determine, once decomposition has begun, whether a deceased newborn ever took a breath; and suffocation, unlike strangulation, leaves no physical marks, unless excessive pressure is applied to the face or lips.
A murderer [End Page ] needed but a few moments to smother a child and could claim that the child was stillborn, had been accidentally overlain, or had died from natural causes.
Unwanted pregnancies could be kept from public notice with the help of family or friends, especially pregnancies that came to term in late winter or early spring, when expectant mothers could live quietly out of the public eye or stay wrapped in heavy clothing.
In New England, a large proportion of suspected neonaticides—nearly a quarter—occurred in April or early May, "mud season" in the Yankee vernacular, when people emerged from their long winter "hibernation. Siblings of abused children rarely informed on their abusive parents.
In a few cases, they joined in the abuse. If public suspicions were not aroused, children who died of abuse could be prepared for burial by their parents and laid to rest publicly like other deceased children.
Add to these problems the limitations of particular historical sources that failed to record certain types of murder, and the study of child murder seems a daunting task.
Forensic anthropologists are helping historians overcome some of these problems Walker Forensic scientists cannot study soft-tissue injuries, such as those involved in suffocation or drowning, but they can study skeletal injuries.
Walker forthcoming examines European, Asian, and North American skeletal remains from ancient times to the present for the telltale injuries of abused children today: Such injuries appear nowhere in skeletal records before the last decades of the nineteenth century, when they appear suddenly and with great frequency in remains gathered from abandoned cemeteries in London, St.
Of course, researchers must study many more skeletons before they can write a full history of even this one injury, but the evidence is strong that this form of violence against children is an artifact of history, not of the human condition.
The epidemiological evidence that has survived for New England makes the same point—that child murder is neither random nor constant, but an artifact of historical circumstances.
Each historical source for studying child murder has its flaws.
The character and incidence of publicly recognized child murders changed dramatically over time, in ways that make sense in light of the history of abortion, fertility, marriage, illegitimacy, child labor, and adult homicides.
The best evidence on child homicides comes from inquests and examinations of murder suspects before justices of the peace. New Englanders and their public officials acted decisively, especially in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, whenever child murder was suspected.
Investigations of the unexplained deaths of older children proceeded on the assumption that murder was a possibility, particularly if children were found dead in streams or wells, or If you would like to authenticate using a different subscribed institution that supports Shibboleth authentication or have your own login and password to Project MUSE, click 'Authenticate'.
