Year 10 Historians enjoy a day of medical research at Huntarian Museum

Year 10 historians experienced a very interesting day visiting the Huntarian Museum.

The trip was a fantastic way for these 30 students to extend their knowledge on the History of Medicine. The students were put to work straight away by the museum staff. They were given two hours to complete different inquiries into the history of surgery.

Over the course of this task, the students came into contact with surgical tools (old and new), primary sources and original copies of some seriously significant literature. They also got to view and analyse the Royal College of Surgeon’s very large collection of preserved human and animal organs (not for the squeamish!).

The museum staff were really impressed with our students who constantly asked intelligent questions and demonstrated curiosity at every turn - they certainly did the school proud!
