One Day Seminar

Herbal History Research Network

The aim of this day seminar is to bring together researchers in the history of herbal medicine and others interested in explorations into preservation and the practice of herbal medicine. The theme of preservation can be understood at varying levels, from a practical concern with preservation of medicinal remedies to the continuity or otherwise of traditions of knowledge and understanding of plants as medicines. This seminar will incorporate talks on doing research, relating past and present practice, practical aspects of preservation, and continuities of herbal knowledge.
