How to get here

30 March - 22 September 2019

Explore the methods of five medieval medical practitioners and discover how archaeological science has uncovered more about these individuals and their patients.

Get up close to human skeletons from the period and discover diverse approaches to treatment. Find out about diseases through interpretation; including a facial reconstruction of an unfortunate leprosy sufferer.

Discover medical methods through the barber surgeon’s chest of tools, the physician’s uroscopy wheel and the apothecary’s medicinal ingredients and treatments.

Plus there is a chance to see the short film A Touch of Plague, written by Horrible Histories author, Terry Deary, exclusively for the exhibition.
