What was medical care like in a world without knowledge of cellular biology, germs or even a good understanding of physiology, a time when governments did not regulate medicine or license doctors?  Was it all just superstition, cynically barbaric treatments, or selling snake oil to desperate sufferers?  Join Tom Kelleher, Historian and Curator of Mechanical Arts as he considers these questions and examines health care before it became scientific, or a big business, with some reflections and contextual comparisons to health care in the 21st century.
