Body-Snatching Double Bill

This weekend, we were very lucky to be joined by Suzie Lennox and Sarah Wise, two experts in body-snatching.

Sarah introduced us to the world of London body-snatching. Find out:

The story of two elderly ladies and their private graveyard

Exactly how much you could get for a body and how (and why) the prices varied

Where to mostly easily get a body

How body-snatching turned to murder (and no, we’re not talking about Burke and Hare)

Professional standards (and remarkable efficiency) in the body-snatching trade

Suzie takes us on a tour of (mostly) Scottish cemeteries to look at the increasingly intricate ways people tried to prevent the depredations of the body snatchers.

This started off as a story blog to share the little fictions that I like to write but it's turned into something a bit more Goth! I'm Dr Sam Hirst and I research the Gothic, theology and romance and at the moment I'm doing free Gothic classes online! We also have readalongs, watchalongs and reading groups. And I post fun little Gothic bits when I have the chance. Find me on twitter @RomGothSam
