The Victorian era in the United Kingdom was the period of Queen Victoria’s reign. It lasted from June 20 1837, until her death on January 22, 1901. During the Victorian Era, Britain built a large empire across the world, and spread its culture across the globe. It was time of great inventions, changes, political movements, and more.

But it was also time of rituals, and many of them were linked to death. Victorians dealt with death in a variety of ways, ranging from the simplest to the most elaborate.

In this documentary, a BBC television presenter Dan Cruickshank, takes us back to the era to investigate the circumstances and rituals which surrounded death at the time. From body snatching to burning, we find out all about Victorian era rituals by examining the fate of corpses.
