Great Medical Discoveries: 800 Years of Oxford Innovation

The Bodleian examines Oxford's contribution to the art and science of medicine over the last 800 years.

Through an unusual display of documents and instruments, visitors to the exhibition can discover the role played by Oxford's scientists, philosophers and physicians in various significant medical breakthroughs over the course of history, from the mediaeval era to the present day.

In particular the exhibition highlights Roger Bacon's conception of science as the experimental and inductive study of nature in the 13th century, and Dorothy Hodgkin's discovery of the structure of penicillin during world war two.

Mon-Fri 09.00-17.00, Sat 09.00-16.30, Sun 11.00-17.00.
