National Civil War Centre

Tudors, Tonics and Sickly Stuarts

Saturday 7th September, 2.30pm

This fascinating talk looks at 'Maladies and Medicine in the 16th and 17th Centuries', asking how people tried to stay healthy in an era hundreds of years before the foundation of the NHS? Dr Sara Read, lecturer in English at Loughborough University, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, answers this question and more alongside some wonderful period illustrations.

£5 or free with admission.
