About Meet the Barbersurgeon
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
It's 1573 and once more Edinburgh Castle is under siege! In the midst of the flying cannon balls and crumbling walls is 'barber surgeon' Hector Cadaver.
His normal routine is cutting hair and pulling teeth, but now you can glimpse the grisly world of a 16th century doctor as he removes musket balls and amputates shattered limbs in the days before anaesthetic. Discover some of nature's remedies used for treating wounds, and see the tools of the surgical trade in Hector's medical cabinet.
Visitors will be asked to participate - you have been warned!
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Meet the Barbersurgeon are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
