The Napoleonic Surgeon

Find out what surgery was like during the Napoleonic Wars, on the battlefield, aboard ship and in civilian life.

Join Mr Mick Crumplin FRCS, Honorary Curator of the Historical Surgical Instrument Collections who will appear as a surgeon working in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries during the Napoleonic Wars. He will describe and demonstrate some of the operations performed on the battlefield, at sea and in civilian life, at a time when hygiene was poor and pain relief unheard of. A chance to get up close and personal with surgical instruments used at that time!
