Experience a Séance at the Edinburgh Dungeon - is anybody there?
In 1836 a group of children made the eerie discovery of 17 small coffins on Arthur’s Seat containing miniature dolls. These are now housed in the National Museum of Scotland and it is said that they represent the 17 victims of Burke and Hare including Margery Doherty, their final victim, who was killed on 31 October, Halloween, 1828.
Were the dolls intended to provide a symbolic burial and resting place for the troubled souls of Burke and Hare’s victims? Do their souls forever remain in unrest? Through our séance experience you will reach out to these souls and help them pass to the other side.
