Happening History – Medicine Through Time Workshop for Schools

Happening History was originally formed in 2004 as ‘Discovering Medieval’ by husband-and-wife team, Paul & Karen Hamilton-Viall. We wanted to create fun and interactive displays for schools and historic sites where people could see, touch, and smell the past and become truly interactive with it.  We both have a passion for history and wanted to prove to others how interesting history can be.

Our displays have proved very popular, and we have now moved forward in time to include displays on 18th C crime, WW1 & the 1940s Home Front so a change of name seemed appropriate.

If your students are studying ‘Medicine Through Time’ then our medieval medicine workshop is the perfect supplement to it. We focus on the 4 humours, bloodletting, surgery and the differences between physician and wise woman.
