Synopsis

Medicine Through the Ages by Andrew Langley, Nicola Barber, Rebecca Vickers, Chris Oxlade

How has our knowledge of medicine and public health built up since prehistoric and ancient times? How often did new advances benefit ordinary people? This series looks at major changes in medical knowledge and shows that many factors prevented a strong understanding of the human body and disease until modern times, and that inequalities of healthcare still exist around the world.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.
