Archibald Young: 230 years of surgical instruments

Archibald Young: 230 years of surgical instruments
-

An evening lecture in association with University of Aberdeen Museums and Special Collections and Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.

In 2006, while completing her Master of Arts in Museum Studies at Newcastle University Ruth undertook an historical research dissertation of an Edinburgh surgical instrument maker Archibald Young & Son. The aim was to uncover the firm’s history and in doing so provide information for museums and exhibitions and to provide a method for dating instruments in collections. Her presentation draws on the results of these findings.
