Description

FREE TALK

Advances in medicine are occurring at an astonishing rate, and yet such progress is inevitably tied to the limitations of our time and of times past.

For this talk, Historian in Residence at the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, Dr Emily Mayhew will take us through the development of medicine and injury in wartime, stretching from the First World War to the modern day.

Through in-depth case studies, Emily investigates the limits of human life and the extraordinary costs paid both physically and mentally by casualties across the world over the past century.


We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
