Wednesday 11th November – Liz Davies, Curator of the St Neots Museum ‘Magic and Folk Medicine in Huntingdonshire’
What sort of alternative medicines did people use before the introduction of the National Health Service in 1948? And what sort of medicines and charms were available from local folk healers? This illustrated talk will include the extraordinary story of the St Neots antique dealer, herbal medicine maker and road sweeper, Alfred ‘Doc’ Rowlett (pictured).
As usual these talks are open to non-members, who should email David Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the link a few days before.
