Bishop Vaughan School, Swansea
"Kevin's expert subject knowledge and replica tools and instruments really brought to life the complex beliefs people
had about illness from the Romans, Medieval European, Islamic and Renaissance periods. Kevin also skilfully explained the
different operations that were carried out in the past and the changes that led to improvements and developments. Kevin's
sessions were enlivened by his extensive collection of replica tools and surgical implements. Event organiser Miss Charles
said, "The day was excellent revision for all the students involved. It really brought to life all the developments in
medicine students have studied in year 9 and it was great to see the students interacting with the different artefacts."
"The children thoroughly enjoyed learning about Richard III, Battle of Bosworth, etc (especially the weapons and
disgusting bits!). You know they've enjoyed something when they want to say behind after school to try on the armour and are
still talking about it the next day. The pack you gave us was very useful for follow up activities too."
