Doctors, Dissection And Resurrection Men

Explore the early 19th century history of human dissection and the trade in dead bodies through dramatic evidence unearthed during Museum of London Archaeology excavations at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel. From resurrection men and surgeon-anatomists to the East End patients whose remains were taken for medical research, you’ll follow the stories of those at the centre of a fierce debate to legalise the confiscation of ‘unclaimed’ bodies, giving the State the right to decide the fate of vulnerable individuals after death.

Admission charge applies.
Tickets on sale from June 2012.
