Mortal Monarchs

Interview with Suzie Edge

Unlocking the Horrors of History: Tortures & Treatments.

Dr Suzie Edge joins Philippa to talk about how how the body reacts to the execution methods which we hear about so often in British History. It's not all pain and punishment though as I ask Suzie about the so-called, treatments like bloodletting and shaving the head, why these were thought to help, and the actual effect they had. #history #medical #britishhistory .

You can get hold of a copy of Suzie's new book 'Mortal Monarchs' on Amazon .
