Disease, Death and Pain: How Do We Know What We Know?
Event on 2017-06-21 19:00:00
How do we know about symptoms of the plague? Who actually wrote about their ownexperiences of torture? Ever wondered where history comes from? My esteemed colleagues at York Dungeon are opening their doors to allow us a night ofstomach-turning historical examination. We will delve into the gore that theDungeon is famous for, but with a focus on the accounts of the miserable peoplethat were actually there. We will suffer through the 17th century plague,torture throughout the ages, experiences of death, superstition, andwitchcraft. No prior knowledge of history required, but perhaps a strongstomach.Tickets include entry to the historical tour, a complimentary welcome drink and a Q&A with the host.
