Meeting Details

The 19th Century was one in which modern, science-based medicine was born. The illnesses, and causes of death, can be surprising to modern eyes, as can the treatments. This will be an overview of life, illness and death over the century. It will touch on comparison of sickness and mortality from the pre-modern to the modern era. Judith will help us to understand some of the ailments that appear on our ancestors’ records.
