Health, Medicine and Care in Wales, 1600-1750
How well equipped was the early modern household to prepare medicines? Who was responsible for caring for the sick, both at home and in the community? Drawing on largely unexplored source material, as well as a number of different approaches and methodologies, Withey offers new insights into the early modern experience of illness, medicine and care through a study of the medical history of 17th-century Wales.
