Medieval Matters- CSI: Medieval England
June 3, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
Join Dr. Sara M. Butler, King George III Professor in British History at Ohio State University, for a presentation on medieval forensics. Using the coroner’s inquest as a lens offers a fresh perspective on the process of death investigation in medieval England. The medieval relationship with death and disease, in particular, shaped coroners’ and their jurors’ understanding of the inquest’s medical needs and led them to conclusions that can only be understood in context of the medieval world’s holistic approach to health and medicine.
