Kirkcaldy Galleries - outreach exhibitions and activities

Date(s): 1 December 2014 - 31 March 2015

Cost: Free

From December until the end of March 2015, Surgeons' Hall Museum, in partnership with Edinburgh University will bring it's touring exhibition ‘Words and Deeds, Weapons and Wounding’ to Kirkcaldy Museum.

The University of Edinburgh’s exhibition ‘Words and Deeds: Women, Warfare and Caregiving’ explores the often neglected and understated story of women in warfare and was hosted at Surgeons’ Hall Museum during 2013. Subsequently, a new exhibition has been developed by Surgeons’ Hall Museum to be displayed in conjunction with the original exhibition.  ‘Weapons and Wounding’ will highlight the severity of injuries women in warfare would have dealt with, exploring the progression of weaponry and the ever increasing need for new medical and surgical techniques to cope with wounding in warfare.

The exhibition and associated activities are free of charge. Selected activities will be taking place at the venue. Please contact the venue for more information.
