The Napoleonic Surgeon



Tuesday 29th May 2007, 12.00 and 14.00


Join Mr Mick Crumplin FRCS, Honorary Curator of the Historical Surgical Instrument Collections who will appear as a surgeon working in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries during the Napoleonic Wars. He will describe and demonstrate some of the operations performed on the battlefield, at sea and in civilian life, at a time when hygiene was poor and pain relief unheard of. A chance to get up close and personal with surgical instruments used at that time!




Suitable for all ages. Tickets are FREE but pre-booking is essential. Please call 020 7869 6560 to book.


Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons,

35-43 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London, WC2A 3PE
