It was £8 during the summer, when the warmer temperatures brought on quicker decomposition, and £10 in the winter months, when the demand by anatomists was greater, because the colder temperatures meant they could store corpses longer so they undertook more dissections

  13. The finding of fossilized skeletons of the Irish Elk, not exclusively Irish as mentioned and indeed not an Elk, at least not a member of the present Elk family, was important in the study of Evolution and Extinction. Until the 18th Century it was believed that fossilized remains, when found, were just skeletons of animals still in existence somewhere else on the planet. However, a French scientist Georges Cuvier showed that the Irish elk did not belong to any species of mammal that was living at the time but had to have been a species that had died out. His study of the Irish elk was a key moment in the history of the study of extinction and ultimately evolution.
