Wednesday, September 14 at 1.30pm. Wrecking Ball Arts Centre, Whitefriargate
This talk will explore the public health of 17th century Kingston upon Hull and the improvements made towards the end of the century in water supply, sewage and public safety.
Have you ever wondered what diseases were prevalent at this time? What medicines were available, if any, to treat disease? Who were the physicians, apothecaries, surgeons, barber surgeons and midwives of the day? What was their status in society? How did they qualify to practice? The speaker will discuss all of these issues in the course of the talk.
No booking required
Stairs only access to first floor.
