Details

The doctor is in and he's here to teach you all he knows about the Black Death!

The plague doctor will be discussing the spread of history's most feared plague, what it did, how bad it really was and the medieval and renaissance world's attempts to treat it. Learn how medieval doctors viewed the spread of disease, how effective their treatments were and the origin of the infamous plague doctor's ghastly visage.

After the talk, join the doctor for an open discussion for questions and a look at his tools of the trade. £5
