Maritime Medicine: The Old Fashioned Way

Maritime Medicine: The Old Fashioned Way In-Person

Ever wonder what medicine was like in the days of the high seas where pirates and warships abound? Leslie Alexander, from Restoration Herbs, has studies medical traditions using the herbs available to doctors at the time and recreates some of their tinctures and potions. Come try some out and learn if you could survive battle at sea or a journey to the ends of the earth using medicine that may or may not be as good as what we have today. 

Registration required at events.erielibrary.org so we have enough samples to pass around. 

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
