Anatomists in Georgian London

Lecture by Simon Chaplin, Senior Curator, Museums of the Royal College of Surgeons of England


The late 18th century has been characterised as an age of body-snatchers, supplying stolen corpses for dissection by surgeons.

But why was this gruesome trade tolerated? How did the anatomists persuade their peers to condone, rather than condemn, the noisome business of dissection?

Next lecture in the series is The Dictionary Garret - anatomy of a room
