Burns First Aid and the Search for Simplicity in Britain, c.1800-2000

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 22nd Jan 2020

 Free

This talk will explore the almost two centuries of confusion surrounding first aid for burns and scalds.

Using real-life events drawn from coroner’s inquests and wartime Britain, we will consider how these injuries occurred and some of the methods employed to help. In doing so, we outline how first aid developed from seemingly weird and wonderful treatments – including spider’s web, lead paint, and mutton dripping – to the official advice given today.

This event takes place in the Chapter Hall which is on the second floor.

‘Forged by Fire: Burns Injury and Identity in Britain, c.1800-2000′ is funded by the AHRC and run by the University of Birmingham and Leeds Beckett University.
