Mortsafes were used to prevent corpses being stolen by bodysnatchers (resurrection men) for use in anatomy schools. The earliest mortsafes consisted simply of a large stone that was too heavy for the resurrection men to lift. The stone was placed on top of the coffin in the grave. Sometimes it was left permanently in place, in other cases it was dug up for reuse once the body had become corrupt and of no use to the anatomists.
