BBC: “Cambridge University Library to Publish Medieval Medical Cures”
From the BBC:
Stuffing a puppy with snails and baking an owl are some of the medieval medical cures which will be shared online by Cambridge University Library.
More than 180 medieval manuscripts will be digitised, catalogued and conserved over the next two years as part of the Curious Cures project.
The oldest manuscript dates back to 1,000 years ago.
Project leader James Freeman said it was “a reminder of the pain and precarity of medieval life”.
The texts are from the collections of the University Library, Fitzwilliam Museum and a dozen Cambridge colleges.
