Historical Event


The household of Plas Mawr is in a state of anticipation awaiting the new arrival. Feeling ill? Join us as we explore Tudor medicine - from amputating a limb using the ‘latest’ surgical equipment to herbal medicines designed to relieve the symptoms of the common cold and bubonic plague.

Our two experts are a medical historian and a fully qualified herbalist and both are keen to offer a diagnosis and propose treatment of the ailment visitors will be assigned when they arrive.
