Hidden Aberdeen presents
17 JUNE - TUESDAY
Learn of the murky medical doings of the surgeons, students and professional resurrectionists in the city from the 1800s to the passing of the Anatomy Act in 1832 which put an end to the theft of bodies from cemeteries and legalised the supply of corpses to medical research. Featuring the great riot of Hospital Row, when Dr Andrew Moir’s anatomy theatre was torn to the ground by angry citizens. These stories and many more will be “dug up” on the Burkers and Bodysnatchers tour - another in the serious of Murder History/True Crime tours.
Start time: 7.30pm
