The Bodysnatcher Haunts: A Guided Walk

A guided walk around Southwark to sites frequented by the bodysnatchers of the 18th century


To carry out the anatomy at the heart of medical teaching,
the students and tutors of the United Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital required human material. Until the Anatomy Act of 1832 was enforced, the Hospital’s scramble for anatomical supplies encouraged the Resurrectionist gangs to dig up the dead! Trace the secretive 19th century Bodysnatcher’s tour, ferrying the newly dead across London.
