Maxton Met - Dr Brian Moffat

What a treat!
To open the 9th season of Maxton Meets we were lucky enough to be able to invite Dr Moffat back after a seven year absence.
With his 25 years of excavation and research at the Soutra Mediaeval Hospital, there can be few people who know as much about the medical practices of the Augustinian monks as Dr Moffat.

With his natural skill for communication and his wide-ranging knowledge he gave a fascinating insight into his work and into the lives of people in mediaeval times, their ailments and their social problems, and the ways in which the monks tried to aid their plight.

Thanks from all present for an entertaining and enlightening evening, Brian.
