DateTuesday 28th May 2019
DescriptionIn this talk we will delve into the subject of Manchester's numerous burial sites. Many morbid and bizarre stories emerge as soon as you start digging! Manchester's body snatchers or 'resurrectionists' turned a trade providing corpses to anatomy schools, sometimes relying on criminal methods when legal supply fell short of demand. Other stories tell of a headless corpse and the Manchester mummy! Steve Little is an historian, local explorer and member of The Portico, who will exhume some of these forgotten stories.
