Grave-robbers, Resurrectionists, Sack-em-up men. Call them what you will, they practiced an abhorred, yet fascinating occupation. They snuck into church-yards and cemeteries, in the dead of night, to steal the bodies of the recently dead. Despised both by the public, and even by the medical community they served, these men took enormous chances. Why would anyone risk not only imprisonment or hanging at the hands of the law, but guards, vigilantly mobs, and cleverly laid booby traps just to make a living? And what techniques did they employ to obtain their macabre goods and escape undetected? Come find out...if you dare!
