Medicine Through Time/Health And The People


“Our GCSE historians were fortunate enough to attend a talk given by a specialist in medical history. Kevin Goodman from ‘Bows, Blades and Battles’ showed his vast repertoire of medical tools and showed students how surgeons would treat the afflicted in simpler times. His knowledge and expertise offered excellent support to the students as they prepared for their exams.”
