Young Friends Sleepover: medicine through time

23-24 September 2017, 18.00 - 09.00
Registration in Room 4
£45.00

Young Friends can come to an exciting sleepover on the theme of medicine through time. Through craft workshops, participatory activities and storytelling sessions, Young Friends and their guests will learn how medicine has changed through history as a result of science, war, and belief systems across different cultures. Explore the British Museum at night and discover how the practice of medicine has changed through history.

Do the roaring lion pose or curl like a cat to find out how yoga first began – and how it has influenced the way we exercise today. Make a body part (ew!) and offer it at the altar of the god Asclepius in the ancient Greek galleries. Listen to stories of horrible healing from the Middle Ages, and diagnose our Renaissance victim's disgusting disease!

At the end of the evening Young Friends and their guests will spend the night sleeping in the Egyptian and Assyrian galleries surrounded by kings and gods from the ancient world. In the morning there will be breakfast and a chance to visit the BP exhibition Scythians: warriors of ancient Siberia.
