New for 2019
This intriguing exhibition explores the practices of those who were involved in providing care and remedies of various kinds in the early medieval period. Physicians, barber surgeons and apothecaries, as well as churchmen and women would have used different methods to try and cure people of their ills; methods which are sometimes gruesome but always fascinating.
Artefacts and human remains from the period shown in the exhibition reveal the effects of various diseases and illnesses. Would the patients’ experiences have been different if they were treated today?
Games and hands-on activities throughout the exhibition all add to the fun and interactivity to give your visitors a taste of true history, warts and all!
“We have always found it a pleasure to work with the JORVIK Group and have thought their medieval themed exhibitions to be of a consistently high quality.”
