Quoi de neuf, docteur ? Médecine et santé à l’époque romaine

Curator of the exhibition: Véronique Dasen

French,  Nyon Roman Museum, Exhibition handbook (27 p.)


Under the high patronage of Hippocrates, the Roman Museum went looking for traces of doctors and their patients in Roman times … What happened when people fell ill in Roman society?  Who did one go to for medical attention?  What status did a doctor have at a time when there were no diplomas to validate medical training officially?  How did people understand the functioning of the body?  What therapies were available?  A series of research activities and recent archaeological discoveries give a new picture of medical practice in Antiquity and its successes and failures.
