Discovering 1461 Mortimer's Cross  Battlefield project
The second talk in the series 'Discovering1461'

Owain Leech (researcher and author Kevin Goodman) will give a talk and display on medieval battlefield wounds, treatment and surgery. In Medieval times, people were warned that if they wished to enjoy a long and healthy life they should avoid doctors and surgeons!

Discover why the Surgeon was so feared! Known for his entertaining and interactive talks, Owain Leech has informed crowds across the UK on the history of medicine and surgery and will discuss the type of wound or injury typical of medieval battles and the often grisly medieval treatments that followed. All welcome.
