Medieval Medicine and the PlagueBook - 2006
Medicine was a mysterious art in the Middle Ages and had not yet benefited from the scientific discoveries we take for granted today. This astonishing new book illustrates how death and incurable disease were considered a common part of medieval life. Young readers will be fascinated by the history of the Black Death, or the Plague, which killed millions of people in Europe, and why medical treatments in the Middle Ages were often worse than the disease.
