The Roman Medicine Roadshow

Interpretation for a target audience
The Roman Medicine Roadshow explores medicine and health in the Roman world, exploring the historical impact of medical science, considering ideas and attitudes towards health, medicine and the human body in Roman society. The project was designed to engage specifically with an audience of young people from socio- economically deprived areas.

The Roman Medicine Roadshow won this category because:

The Roman Medicine Roadshow was a very inclusive, brave and sensory approach to the interpretation of Roman medicine and the practice of archaeological osteology. It combined exciting live interpretation in non-heritage venues and active school workshops to appeal to all learning styles, based on good formative and short-term summative evaluation. A project that truly provokes thought.
