Things for the Surgeon: The Body Snatchers of Georgian London
Time Out says
Enthusiastic Georgian surgeons and medical students weren't content with just watching other people practice, leading to a demand for human bodies which the legal suppliers could not keep up with. This talk tells of London's eighteenth-century bodysnatchers, who raised the dead in the name of medicine, and even got away with murder. Not suitable for under-12s. Booking essential.
