School Days | Medicine through the Ages


What will happen in the day?


We look at the development of medicine using artefacts to illustrate ideas from the Greeks to the Tudor period. Starting off with Greek and Roman medicine we take a walk through early medieval magic and superstition, to the use of astronomy.

Children love gore, and this day can be designed to maximise gruesomeness. Hippocrates to horoscopes in half a day!

Topics covered include:
o Medical beliefs and theory.
o Medical artefacts.
o The four humours.
o Medicine and operations.
o Magic and astrology.
o Washing and cleanliness.
