18th Century Medicine

A Wisewoman, an Herbalist,
a Regimental Sugeron and a Surgeon.


Medicine in the 18th century was as complicated as it is today:

The Wisewoman (midwife) of the town would look to the needs of woman and children.

The Doctor (Herbalist) would look after the menfolk; and the women and children.

And the surgeons?

All four will be at the fortified village to look after the wellbeing of the township.
Saturday, September 23rd, 10 am to 4 pm
