Introduction

The life and times of the Costermongers Part 2 To do this project we had several stimuli to start with to get some ideas and get started. These stimuli were: Land owner's speech, The poster of murder in the red barn and finally Lady Audley's secret. I responded to these very positively. I saw it as a chance to express myself and put in several ideas into them.
