Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men

Date Posted: 04/06/2012

Tickets are now on sale for new Museum of London exhibition, Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men, opening on the 19th October.

Running until 14th April, the exhibition will explore the early 19th century history of human dissection and the trade in dead bodies.

Based on dramatic evidence unearthed during Museum of London Archaeology excavations at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men features human skeletal remains.

From resurrection men and surgeon-anatomists to East End patients whose remains were taken for medical research, groups will 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.

Group travel organisers booking in advance will receive a 20 per cent discount on ticket prices for parties of ten or more.

Curator talks can be included as part of a group trip to the Museum of London.

Find out more about how the museum’s skeletal remains and archaeological finds were used to develop the exhibition.

If you’re organising group travel for children and young people, please note that Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men is not suitable for under 12s.
