Event: Marvellous Medicines seminar

From the numerous drug jars, surgical implements and anatomical drawings held by the specialist medical museums to the odd tooth extractor, pill box or hernia truss we find in our social history stores many of us are faced with medical objects in our curatorial work. This seminar explores just what you can do with them, from the basics of knowing exactly what it is you’ve got to taking inspiration from those objects for inventive events, displays and projects. You will also be taken on a guided tour around the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons, Scotland’s oldest museum.
