Tales From The Dark Side I: The Night Of The Body Snatchers at The Old Operating Theatre Museum & Herb Garret

About

Today, the body snatchers who crept into the burial grounds of Georgian London to dig up the dead for the anatomy schools of London seem like characters from a dark gothic story. But the body snatchers were not characters from fiction and the lucrative trade in human corpses was real. Hear the real story of London's Resurrection Men, and the anatomy schools they supplied and discover how the development of surgery in the Enlightenment lead to the business of selling the dead. Join Kirsty Chilton, assistant curator, and an expert on the topic in this the first talk in the Tales From the Dark Side Series. Doors will open at 6:30 PM. *Access: The Museum is only accessible through a 52-step spiral staircase.
