History of Pre-Modern Medicine Seminar Series (Londres, 2014-15)

The History of Pre-Modern Medicine seminar series returns this autumn. The 2014-15 series – organised by a group of historians of medicine based at London universities and hosted by the Wellcome Library – will commence with four seminars in the autumn term. The series will be focused on pre-modern medicine, which we take to cover European and extra-European history before the 20th century (antiquity, medieval and early modern history, some elements of 19th-century medicine).
