There is a civil war event taking place in Newport Pagnell over the August bank holiday weekend, see details below.
If you are interested in events taking place througout the UK which relate to the War then this could quicken your pulse, the event takes place on June 23rd 2016 the title being -
Quacks, butchers or pioneers ? Surgeons and the treatment of wounds in the Civil Wars.
The venue is
The Commandery, Sidbury, Worcester, WR1 2HU
The description sounds particularly grisly and includes video footage of a shoulder or pork being cut by swords, you can only imagine the injuries inflicted by the weapons commonly used in the war, and given the fairly primitive methods used to treat these wounds the suffering must have been pretty nasty .
The talk will be given by Dr Stephen Rutherford of Cardiff University, he owns a collection of replica surgical instruments which will be on show and Stephen will be using examples of some of the surgical procedures taken from the writings of Richard Wiseman a Surgeon who was present at the Battle of Worcester in 1651.
