From Shroud to Specimen

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

As private anatomy schools flourished in the 18th Century, all were faced with one problem: the lack of corpses available for dissection. To provide teaching specimens, even the most respectable of surgeons had the same recourse... On the darkest nights, climbing over the graveyard wall, came the bodysnatcher - his mission? To dig up the bodies of the dead!
