Death Practice in the 19th Century by Charlie Guy online talk

Museum of Wigan Life hosts a FREE online zoom talk 'Death Practice in the 19th Century' by Charlie Guy

About this Event
The Museum of Wigan Life is delighted to host this FREE online talk.
The Choir Invisible: Death Practice in the 19th Century - Charlie Guy

This talk aims to dispel the dark myths of the Victorian dead and shine a light on some of the forgotten, outdated and downright creepy funerary practices, traditions and superstitions of the age. From booby-trapped coffins and body-snatchers to photography and funeral souvenirs, come and explore the fascinating world of the Victorian dead brought back to life.

Due to the subject of this talk it is most suited to adults.
