Come and meet medieval surgeon Owain Leech and discover: how medieval physicians diagnosed and treated illness; how medieval surgeons used leeches as part of treatment; the operations medieval surgeons performed including removing arrows and treating toothache and the diseases that plagued the medieval world. You might even get chance to mix your own medieval medicine.
Entry to the Museum is free, however donations are welcomed to help us deliver more great events.
This is just part of the fun planned for the Chesterfield Medieval Fun Day. Head out in to the town and visit the Medieval encampment in the grounds of the Crooked Spire Church or enjoy the entertainment and funfair in the Marke Place.
