      The Fear of Being Buried Alive: A Georgian & Victorian Perspective

      At a time when levels of conciousness were poorly understood, determining when someone was actually dead was an imperfect science. It still can be. The fear of being buried alive and of a desperate struggle to free yourself from your own grave was always present and retains it's power today. This is a talk about some of the possible - and probable - incidences of people being buried alive or escaping from their own grave in the 18th and 19th century, and some ways to protect yourself from this fate... Join Kirsty Chilton, assistant curator and museum researcher, for this fascinating talk. This will be the first talk on our Fear Series.  Doors will open at 6:30 PM. The talk will begin at 7:00 PM.  Tickets: £12.00 *Access is through a 52-step spiral staircase. Please, visit our website for further details on access.
