Quacks and quackery: Neglected knowledge or medical madness?

Today, much of the medicine of the past looks like quackery, yet at the time it was accepted by the best doctors of the day - and it seemed to work. Using images and objects from the Science Museum’s collection, this event asks: How do we spot a quack? How has quackery influenced medicine in history? What is - and what is not - medicine? Presented by Dr Patrick Wallis, LSE and the Science Museum's medical team.
