Event description

Description

The Casebooks Project is holding two ‘clinics’ offering help reading and understanding Simon Forman’s and Richard Napier’s casebooks. Forman and Napier recorded 80,000 consultations in messy handwriting and astrological notation between 1596 and 1634. Topics in the cases include health and illness, emotions, marriage, sex, witchcraft, dreams, the weather, voyages, theft and treasure. There is something for everyone, from apples to wrestling.

Please bring a laptop and a brief list of cases of interest. These can be found by searching the casebooks project website. See also the guide to searching and list of topics. We welcome inquiries and feedback even if you cannot attend the clinics.

Casebooks Clinics are part of a series of events accompanying CASEBOOKS: Six contemporary artists and an extraordinary medical archive. The exhibition is open from 17 March to 23 April. Opening hours: Tue - Fri 11am - 7pm, Sat - Sun 12pm - 6pm. Closed Mondays except Easter Monday. Admission Free
