Learn about medicine in the Middle Ages

Medieval-style healthcare will be on offer at Milton Chantry at a special day next month.

Monks – or at least actors dressed up as them – will be giving talks and teaching visitors about medicine in the Middle Ages at the heritage centre and former chapel, which is the oldest building in Gravesham.

The event will take place on Sunday, April 12 from noon to 5pm.
