Medieval Mechanics - Family Show

Showing: 02 September 2019 to 31 January 2020

We often think of the Middle Ages as “a time of ignorance and superstition”. In truth it was a period of much invention.  From war machines to agriculture; spectacles to chemistry and scientific method, science owes a lot to medieval times. Join us for this family show to hear about machines invented in the Middle Ages and what these have become in modern times.
