This is a tried and tested activity for classes of all abilities following a GCSE History course that includes a Medicine through time unit. It has previousl been used as both an introductory exercise (able groups) and as a revision exercise for mixed classes. It highlights the various types of beliefs and treatments available in the Medieval period whilst also showing that there was a class divide. The activity was designed to be completed in an hour long session in a large classroom. It works best with tables and chairs rearranged. This activity inspired some of the activities included in my work published by Hodder Murray.
