Apothecary's Garden - Toni Mount


Our February speaker Toni Mount, will being giving a talk on The Apothecary's Garden. With some fascinating facts that, throughout history people have found natural remedies to cure their ills. Sometimes the treatments were sensible but many others were weird and unsuccessful. Surprisingly some ancient remedies are even now being found to effectively treat our most challenging diseases whilst others are the basis for our most common cures. All these treatments would be found on the Apothecary’s shelves or even now grown in our gardens and hedgerows. Toni is an author and novelist specialising in the ordinary lives of fascinating historical characters. She has written several successful nonfiction books including Medieval Medicine; its Mysteries and Science & the Amazon best-seller, Everyday Life in Medieval London. Her historic novels include Victorian and medieval murder-mysteries and her detailed knowledge of these periods help her create believable characters and realistic settings.

 This meeting will also be available on Zoom. Log on details are in the IT News in the January Journal
