How were injuries and illnesses treated in the First World War?
Learners will investigate the changing nature of injuries and illnesses typical in the trenches, from their causes and the mechanisation of warfare, to the different roles of the people helping and the innovations in medicine. Using our extensive handling collection of artefacts, learners can understand the impact of warfare on the Western Front on soldiers' welfare.
