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.
