From booby-trapped coffins and body-snatchers to post-mortem photography and funeral souvenirs, the long-19th-century's obsession with death was all-encompassing; spawning an era of now-forgotten death-etiquette, creepy funerary practices, traditions, and superstitions designed to keep the departed firmly within their realm. But the battle to appease the dead often caused war among the living.

Join us on Halloween and explore the fascinating world of the Victorian dead brought back to life - the superstitions that buried them - and the anatomists who brought them back up.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Dead and Buried: The Wants and Worries of the 19th Century Deceased are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
