What's Under The Kilt?
Now you can own a piece of history, a full replica of the 4-page newspaper, which dedicates an unprecedented two pages to covering the bizarre and gruesome case of Burke and Hare, the two men who supplied Edinburgh's Medical School with perhaps as many as thirty bodies for dissection: a trade which they supplied by murdering the poor and desperate of Edinburgh's Cowgate slums.
This is an absolutely unique item, reproduced from the original 180-year old newspaper published within hours of the verdict being returned.
