Medieval | Medicine

The Medieval Medic has a bad reputation, but do they truly deserve it? The theories and practises and the Medieval doctor and surgeon are examined, demonstrating that for all their failures and mistakes doctors then were every bit as determined to help their patients, and juts as keen to learn as today. Prices depend on distance to Nottingham, I will work for less for charities

About Gareth Howell

I regularly appear on BBC Radio Nottingham as an historical adviser, most notably as the military historian when Armed Forces Day was hosted at Nottingham. I have also spoken on BBC Notts on topics as diverse as Richard 3rd, the tanks, the home guard and the Easter Rising (for which I also appeared on a programme with BBC Ulster). I am also a regular guest speaker for Abingdon Museum in Oxfordshire, the British Biomedical Institute, Buxton Museum and various Rotary clubs. I have done some TV work for BBC Ulster and for Channel 4. If you have a particular interest for a history talk that's not on the list, feel free to ask if I'd be able to field a talk on the subject, after all the worst I could say is no!

I am a confident and engaging speaker after many years teaching in a Nottingham Secondary school.
