Overview

“Really great way of getting students engaged in history” (Secondary trainee teacher 2018)

Discover technology and techniques as we put someone under the knife, Victorian style and explore different medical practices from the past

New medicine and surgery practices may save you in the late Victorian period but what was it like in the early day?

Find out as willing victims undergo very different operations…

Pupils will meet a Roman surgeon first of all and will take on real-life Roman characters with scenarios, taking on Roman aliments and finding out if and how they will be cured.  You will then meet a Victorian doctor to have a similar activity in order to compare and discuss connections with the history of medicine throughout the ages to modern times.
