Adventures in Anatomy Part 1: Eyes

About Adventures in Anatomy Part 1: Eyes

Join Surgeons' Hall Museums Human Remains Conservator, Cat Irving, for our new 3 part talk series 'Adventures in Anatomy'.

Adventures in Anatomy Part 1: Eyes is the first talk in the series which will explore different parts of the body, looking at the way our understanding of them has changed through time, and the part they play in culture and the way we look at the world. Each part of the series has to be booked individually and can be enjoyed as an individual talk or as part of the series if you wish to book all three.

EYES

The eye is considered the window into the soul, and vision has often been considered a primary sense. But how do eyes differ between species, and why have people believed that eyes disprove the theory of evolution? And what was Issac Newton doing when he pushed a bodkin round the back of his eye to see how it worked?

The talk will last approximately an hour and the museum will be open until 9pm for ticket holders only.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Adventures in Anatomy Part 1: Eyes are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
