Medicine with Bessie Borage

Set within a beautiful and atmospheric fully-furnished house and gardens, pupils can explore the different diseases and illnesses that were common in Tudor England and learn about their different remedies. Make an amulet to ward off disease and explore the past using household objects and herbs from the garden. Take part in a herb quiz, discover the secrets within the garden and play a medicine game.
