We are looking forward to welcoming Dr Richard Wragg as our first speaker for the programme 2022-23.
Hoping you will join us in the live audience at 23 Stonegate and also stay on for supper afterwards.
Blood and books: Medical practice and The Guild Book of the Barbers and Surgeons of York
How were surgeons trained in sixteenth century York? How did they care for the City’s inhabitants? How did they group together and how did they interact with the City’s authorities?
This talk will explore the history of medical practice in York as witnessed by the Guild Book of the Barbers and Surgeons of York, now in The British Library, and the records of the York City Archive.
Dr Richard Wragg FRHistS FSA is the Collections Manager at the University of Sussex
