What the Medieval Doctor Ordered

13 November, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is an online event.

‘What the Medieval Doctor Ordered’ is an online, interactive talk and quiz that offers a unique opportunity for anyone, anywhere, to find out more about the practice of medicine in Ireland and Scandinavia in the Middle Ages. This event looks at some extraordinary examples of medieval medicalese (the language of medicine) and delves into ill-advised cures involving cats, plants and ants’ eggs. Discover how medical knowledge was transmitted throughout Western and Northern Europe at that time and what the doctor might have prescribed you!

Best-suited to adults and older children, and especially recommended for families to play along at home.
