The sack 'em up men: Graverobbers and surgeons in Glasgow

Before the Anatomy Act of 1832, the medical schools of Glasgow and elsewhere relied on stolen corpses for teaching and research. This class explores the victims, the robbers and the surgeons involved in this grisly trade, and looks at how ordinary people tried to protect the recently deceased. We'll also look at how communities tried to secure burial grounds, with effects that are still visible today.
