Medicine in Battle


Type: Exhibition

'Medicine in Battle: a surprising history'.

The exhibition will show weird and wonderful medicines and treatments used in Battle, sometimes until quite recently. For example, a leech jar; false teeth made from hippo bone; muscle rub used for humans AND their horses etc. Also featured will be a wonderful farewell book for Dr George Kendall in the late 1920's, like an illuminated manuscript. The citizens of Battle presented him with this and clubbed together to buy him a retirement home in Eastbourne.
