Dissection formed a major part of a medical student's preparation for exams throughout the Victorian era. The Anatomy Act might have laid to rest the horrors of bodysnatching, but cultural unease about dissection remained and contributed to stereotypes of an arrogant medical profession. In this talk, Caroline Rance reveals how Victorian medical schools acquired and used cadavers, and how they sometimes ran into conflict with the wider community.

Caroline Rance is the author of The Quack Doctor and The History of Medicine in 100 Facts. Caroline is on twitter as @quackwriter, has a Facebook page at facebook.com/quackdoctor and instagram at https://instagram.com/quackwriter. She regularly gives talks about the history of medicine, with an emphasis on the Victorian era.

Doors will open at 6:30 pm.

Tickets: £12.00

*Access is through a 52-step spiral staircase.
