Join us to find out all about Roman medicine with the famous Marcus the Medicus
Marcus will introduce you to the world of Roman life and medicine, showing you the tools they used and techniques they had to cure all sorts of ailments and injuries. You may be surprised at some of the similarities with modern day medicine!
Marcus will be in the museum all day ready to delight (and disgust!) visitors with his tales and tools!!
Free with entry to the museum. Booking recommended
We are also hosting a talk with Marcus on 6th July. Find out more here
Marcus is a retired GP and emergency medicine clinician, who now uses his experience to bring historical medicine to life for all audiences through historical re-enactment. He has worked all over Roman Britain, but also travels forward in time to look at Pictish and medieval medical practices.
