Crossbones:

The Outcast Dead

 

Deep in the depths of London’s filthy, squalid past is a patch of land filled with medieval secrets…

 

Welcome to Crossbones Graveyard: last resting place of The Winchester Geese. Miranda Kane tells the story of these women who were prostituted by the church and buried in this scrap of unhallowed ground, as well as many others like them throughout history.

 

Using a mixture of spoken word and stand-up comedy, this is a funny, fascinating tour of some of the pasts the most infamous sex-workers.

 

These are the stories the history books would prefer to be kept on the top shelf!
