Something a bit different for you – an article and slideshow on an aspect of the history of medicine. I have posted this to accompany the work that we have been doing in the history society on the Black Death. If you click here you will get a webpage from the BBC News magazine about Andreas Vesalius’s medical text books and the place that they occupy in scientific history.
At our next meeting I will ask the question why might the history of medicine be useful to us as students of the past ?
Have a look and see what you think.
