Surgery

Barber, Doctor, Surgeon and Peruke (wig) maker in the 17th Century


Whom would you see if you felt ill, or for everyday cuts and wounds if you could not afford to pay the hugely expensive charges of a real surgeon? Your local Barber, or as some might call them today; 'Hairdresser'!

He would deal with all kinds of problems:


  • Checking your water (urine)


He would smell a sample, then taste it. He would also check the colour against an ancient chart, which even included such colours as blue, green, and red to see what was wrong with you. But remember; he needed a good fresh, hot sample, so that he could work out what was wrong with you.
