What's Inside?

Do you dare visit the chambers of a medieval physician? How about his street-corner cousin, the barber-surgeon, ever ready with blade and bandage to draw your blood? Or a prescription from your local apothecary, who might do you just as much good as one of the great learned doctors of Arabian medicine, whose scientific knowledge revolutionised pharmacology in Europe? Maybe the local cunning woman is more your style (or budget)? She might be wise in the way of herbs. Or she might just tell you to strap a chicken to your head and get on with it – before the local priest has her carted off for witchcraft, that is. Whatever interests you about the bizarre, gruesome, and occasionally healing properties of medieval medicine, you can find it here...
