Which treatments will you choose to use on our casualties; ancient remedies or modern medicine? Will swallowing a spider cure their fever? Or munching woodlice ease a cough? Maybe blood will need to be let to improve their temper! Perhaps the more modern option of oxygen to help them breathe, pressure to reduce bleeding or a sling to protect a fracture would be more fitting?

Join the Science Oxford team to discover the wonders of medical science past and present, as well as trying out some first aid techniques yourself.

Part of the Festival of Ancient and Modern Science and Medicine at Cheney School with activities, demonstrations, stalls and exhibitions, a walk-through exhibition in the Library and the opportunity to see the new science building at Cheney. There will also be re-enactments, music and drama performances.
