After You’re Dead!

September 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm BST

Speaker: Eric Jackson

The history of dissection and the grave robbing that took place to feed the need for bodies to dissect. Includes the methods utilised to deter the grave robbers and an account of the activities of Burke and Hare as well as some notable more recent occurrences of grave robbing. Dealt with in a light-hearted way, not at all gruesome. Well illustrated with Power Point slides.
