Healing is a core tenet of who Claire Fraser is in "Outlander," but what was medicine and healthcare really like in the Colonial era? From surgery to medicine to home remedies, surviving in a time before modern practices took work and the right knowledge.
Joining this episode is Charles Brett, a volunteer medical interpreter at Tryon Palace in New Bern, who shares the challenges of medical care 200 years ago –– and what methods and instruments they pioneered that we still use today.
This podcast is sponsored by Durable Restoration Company and Fraser's Ridge Homecoming, presented by Outlander North Carolina.
