Display: Unhealthy Times of Kings and Queens
Saturday, 15 September 2018 to Sunday, 11 November 2018
Blackwell Hall, Weston Library, Oxford
Historically, great harms were caused to the health of the Kings and Queens of England. Charles II died from an apoplectic fit despite being subjected to various treatments such as bloodletting, purging and cupping. This display explores whether today's evidence-based interventions could have changed the outcome.
The content has been curated with Professor Carl Heneghan from the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine.
