Alec Tritton tells us about Burke and Hare - well known resurrection men. They supplied fresh corpses to the Edinburgh Anatomical Schools - often by murder. Each London anatomical student needed at least three bodies during their training. The only legitimate supply was from the gallows, which yielded just 52 bodies in 1831.

So was Edinburgh the only place to have seen murder just for the trade in human corpses or did London have its own burkers?

You can join Alec for a Questions session after the talk.
