I’m Not Dead! The Perils of Premature Burial – Online talkon November 30th 2022

Wednesday, November 30 6:30pm – 7:30pm online

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the fear of being buried alive was intense. In part driven by reports that a case of premature burial was being discovered, on average, at least once a week.

Join us online with expert speaker Lorraine Evans. You will hear more about the history, the fears and the practices and contraptions which were invented to prevent such a catastrophic fate.

Lorraine is a Mortuary Archaeologist and Death Historian specialising in nonconformist/deviant funerary practices and the social history of death.

She is PhD Candidate at the IIPSGP and has written several successful non-fiction history books as well as exhibited her cemetery photographic work across Scotland. She can be followed on Twitter @MortePhoto or at lorraineevans.com

Tickets are £6. Please book below.
