The Romans were very clever but their ideas on medicine and surgery relied largely on magic and folklore. We present real artefacts and authentic replicas which give insight into how the Romans thought the body worked and what they did to treat disease and injury. Prepare to be surprised!

Speakers and entertainers: Sun Jester

Visitors are welcome; an attendance fee of £3.00 is charged for non-members and includes tea or coffee.
