This lecture is a fun-filled and yet unbelievable history of cures and treatments over the years, showcasing some historic medical misfires and malpractices as well as some “treatments” predicated on a range of cluelessness, trial and error, and straight-up scams. Isle of Wight County Museum’s director Jennifer England will bring show bottles of medicine and snake oil.
