From the makers of BBC History Magazine comes The Story of Medicine – a collector’s edition featuring stories from the Black Death to Florence Nightingale.
This special edition looks in detail at the most groundbreaking medical developments and the pioneers behind them, as well as the social aspects of diagnosis and treatment. We explore the cures prescribed by physicians in ancient Greece and Rome, as well as examining the medical practices of pharaonic Egypt and the work of the midwives of antiquity. We introduce the women and men whose work transformed clinical care and surgery: Marie Curie, Louis Pasteur, Florence Nightingale, Alexander Fleming and Edward Jenne, among others.
