Copy Of Spring At Surgeons ' Hall Museums (1)

We have just launched our Spring events programme! The spring events programme is packed with a variety of different events from Surgeons' Hall Museums and RCSEd Library and Archive including our first ever digital event!

We kick off our Spring events with 'Go Home and Sit Still'- a new play by Christopher Silver. The play has been inspired by material held in RCSEd's Archive.

We are also excited to announce that due to popular demand our 'Blood and Guts: The Twists and Turns of Edinburgh's Medical History' walking tours will return on the 20th of April. The tours will take place on Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm until the 20th of October. Tickets  are on sale now!

The Library and Archive will be particpating in Rare Books Edinburgh with 2 events on Gray's Anatomy. They are delighted to be joined by Dr Ruth Richardson who will be discussing Gray's work on March the 25th. They will also be hosting their first digital event which will see the first edition publisher proofs made availabe online for the first time ever! You can view them from the 20th-30th of March on their Digital Collections Website. To be kept up to date with these events, you can follow RCSEd Library and Archive on twitter.

We are also hosting a new 3 part talk series: 'Potted Pathology'. These talks will be delivered by Professor Ken Donaldson, Senior Research Fellow in the Museum. He will describe 3 essential underlying pathological processes that lead to disease- inflammation, infection and cancer  development in an interesting and accessible way.
We will be holding a journal making workshop and a bone handling workshop as well as hosting the launch of E.S Thomson's new novel 'Surgeons' Hall'.

All event information can be found in the events section here.
