    This is such a fantastic true story of the Elephant Man's life and afterlife at the Royal College Museum. The museum is one of the hidden treasures of the London and well worth the visit for all medical enthusiasts.

    I found this audio tour absolutely fascinating and extremely interesting. I would recommend it to anyone interested in Joseph Merrick and the East End at that time.
