19-20 August - Medieval medicin

Would you go to the doctor in the Middle Ages? Where did you go when you were sick? Who could heal you?

In the Middle Ages it was generally believed that, if you were sick, it was due to an imbalance. The imbalance could be in the body, in the mind, or in the universe. This imbalance needed to be brought back into balance.

At the Medieval Center, we like to focus on everyday things and ordinary life - where did you go when you were sick? Who could heal people? Many people believe that in the Middle Ages people could not operate on people or fix broken bones, but they could. Many experiences were made on the battlefields, where field surgeons had to do their best to patch the soldiers together. It was clear that a large number died when they did not have the great knowledge of hygiene and did not yet have antibiotics and the right medicine - but there were also people who survived, and it is seen, among other things, on skeletons, where bones have grown together after healing.

Meet the surgeon, the doctor, and the matron, as they all recount their methods of healing and pain relief.
