Recovery? From Flanders to Afghanistan

Recovery? From Flanders to Afghanistan


A new exhibition to mark the centenary of the First World War.

This thought-provoking exhibition looks at the complex relationship between medicine and conflict, and how the technologies of war drive medical advancements.

Developed with the help of veterans and servicemen and women who have their own experiences of military medicine, the exhibition looks at limb loss, hearing loss and shell shock from the First World War to modern day conflicts.

Reflect on how far technology and medicine are able to heal the body and the mind. Can recovery ever truly be achieved?
