Join Dr Anette Hagan on a curator led tour of “Plague!” The new exhibition at the National Library of Scotland showcases eight contagious diseases that have ravaged Scotland over the last 700 years, and relates the cultural and social history of responses to such epidemics. It highlights government and public health measures, personal accounts in diaries and letters, moral and practical reactions by church people, responses in folk medicine and literature, and through medical investigation.
