Lecture in Life Sciences: Animals and their pathologists in London, c1850-1900

Prof Abigail Woods, Head of the Dept of the History of Human and Animal Health. 

This talk uses the surviving records of the once-thriving Pathological Society of London to explore the place of animals in the history of human medicine. These records reveal the many wild, domesticated, farmed and exotic animal pathologies that doctors studied, described and exhibited to each other. They show that in a 19th century world in which doctors lived, worked and played with animals, medicine was far more zoological in character than it is today.
