- TERRIFYING TRUTH ABOUT VICTORIAN MEDICINE
Registration for this event has closed.
Ah, Victorian life. Graceful. Elegant. Chivalric. Deadly. While you may pine away, dreaming of life in days gone by, there’s something you should know first.
Tricia Kelly will bring to the forefront some astounding—and truly horrifying—information about the “science” of Victorian medicine. Learn how to stop a cough with boiled mercury and laudanum, or how to lessen a child’s fever by wrapping them in ice blankets and loading them with heroin.
You do NOT want to miss this! (Please be advised: this lecture presents graphic images and gruesome situations.)
