The world of stalking cemeteries nearly 200 years ago, to supply surgeons with bodies for dissection, is explored in a new exhibition at the Museum of London.
Jelena Bekvalac, curator of the exhibition, told the BBC's Adam Brimelow that if it wasn't for the body snatchers "we wouldn't be where we are today in medical advancement
it is a horrible process
but there was a greater good at the end."
