This chapter takes a similar approach to the trial's textual remains. The macabre recycling of Castlehaven's clothing was not so different from what happened to the Castlehaven story—it did not end with the death of the principal individuals; instead of putrefying, it was repeatedly repackaged and reused; its serviceability reflected both quality and commercial appetite. It is found that Castlehaven remains as indeterminate dead as he was when alive. Topics discussed include The Castlehavens and the Stuarts, Castlehaven and aristocratic vice, and Castlehaven underground.
