Burke was hanged in front of a crowd possibly as large as 25.000; views from windows in the tenements overlooking the scaffold were hired at prices ranging from 5 to 20 shillings. Burke's skeleton was given to the Anatomical Museum of the Edinburgh Medical School where it remains. His death mask and a book said to be bound with his tanned skin can be seen at Surgeons' Hall Museum. (28 January 1829)
