Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men
An exhibition exploring the grisly world of dissection, autopsy, amputation and body snatching through history is on show at the Museum of London from 18 October. Here is a sneak preview of some of the, often gruesome, objects on display
About the exhibition
The 2006 excavation of a burial ground at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel uncovered amazing results, and now you can see just what was revealed in these 262 burials.
This major new exhibition shows animal and human remains, exquisite anatomical models and drawings and original artefacts that open up the world of dissection, autopsy and amputation, plus the grisly trade in dead bodies.
Doctors, Dissection and Resurrection Men is on show at the Museum of London between 19 October and 14 April 2013. For more information, or to book tickets, visit the museum's website
