SKELETONS IN THE CLOSET - A guided tour of the City's forgotten burial grounds and a private view of the Museum of London's bone archive with Jelena Bekvalac and Robert Stephenson

In the old City of London behind walls and beyond gateways lie many forgotten burial grounds. Historian and esoteric London guide ROBERT STEPHENSON will lead a select number of participants around some of the surprising and secret locations where the capital's dead still rest.

The walk will culminate in a very special visit to the MUSEUM OF LONDON'S BONE ARCHIVE, an astonishing collection of 17,000 skeletons spanning 16 centuries, to view the remains of a selection of dead Londoners. This private view will be guided by the Museum's curator of human osteology JELENA BEKVALAC. Jelena will describe how her forensic archaeological work uncovers the most extraordinary facts about life and death in the capital.


Jelena Beklavac is the Curator of Human Osteology at the Museum of London and was an original member of the research osteologist team at the Wellcome funded Centre for Human Bioarchaeology.

Robert Stephenson is a qualified City of London Culture and Heritage guide and a trustee at Kensal Green and Brompton cemeteries. He teaches on London and death studies. Robert is also chairman of the National Federation of Cemetery Friends.
