"An arm and a leg... The real cost behind the modern bone trade"
The last few years has seen an exponential increase in concerned reports from members of the public, who have found human remains openly for sale in 'curiosity shops', being offered as raffle prizes, and even as a 'chalice' for serving £120-a-time cocktails at a Halloween party. Are these activities legal? Are they ethical? This talk will explore these questions, the dark history of the trade in human remains, and the real stories behind those now being sold as 'antiques'.
