Archibald Young: 230 years of surgical instruments

11th December 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Lecture by Ruth Pollitt, Museum and Collections Assistant, Edinburgh University Anatomical Museum

In 2006, while completing her Master of Arts in Museum Studies at Newcastle University Ruth undertook an historical research dissertation of an Edinburgh surgical instrument maker Archibald Young & Son. The aim was to uncover the firm’s history and in doing so provide information for museums and exhibitions and to provide a method for dating instruments in collections. Her presentation draws on the results of these findings.

Free – no booking required.
