Burkers and Bodysnatchers

In the early nineteenth century, the body snatching business was getting hard. Communities and the law were more alert, competition was fierce and corpses were getting harder to come by. Burke and Hare's solution to this situation was to murder the destitute and sell their bodies straight to the surgeons. There was outrage when the serial killings were discovered.

But the Burke and Hare killings were not the end of murder for anatomy. In Bermondsey, bodysnatcher John Bishop and his partners Thomas Williams and James May began to kill as well, and their final victim, the Italian Boy, was to make them as briefly notorious as Burke and Hare. 

This is a talk about this infamous case and the murky world of the Resurrection Men in which it took place. 

Speaker: Kirsty Chilton

This is a free event but advanced registration is essential via Eventbrite

This event will take place at the London Metropolitan Archives, Clerkenwell, London
