Healthcare weekend

During healthcare weekend in Archeon you will take a stap back in time and learn all about healthcare and beauty through the ages. All the way from prehistoric times until the 21st century. You might end up meeting Thomas van Deest, a surgeon from medieval times. Surgeons were more than just doctors, they were craftsmen specialised in treating the sick and wounded. Surgeons were not allowed to prescribe medicine, but instead used herbs, creams, and other ointments and medical tools to help people in need.

Also during this weekend, an interesting stand will appear. A merchant will be selling indulgence, intended to offer remission of the temporal punishment in purgatory due to sin on earth. Indulgence were very popular in the middle ages, as a lot of people were scared of the devil and the flames of hell.
