Thanks for the tip, Circ.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Good recomendation.

I was surprised to learn that when Prince Henry got an arrow in the face at the Battle of Shrewsbury his physician first had a tool made by an army balckmith to remove the head, then dressed the woulnd in honey and wine as he knew that they prevented wound fever.

Just a pity they were rubbish when it came to dysentry which killed Henry 19 years later

Interesting but it is odd that a physician attending an army about to go into an arrow fight didn't have "something I prepared earlier" - having to tell your agonised patient you had to run to the blacksmith cannot have installed confidence. I know how I would have felt if my surgeon had told me to wait on while he ran to the chemist to get a scalpel blade.

When they excavated Portchester Castle they found evidence of Post roman settlement, several of the teeth examined had been worn to the pulp. A forensic dentist stated that he couldn't even concieve the pain these people must have endured as part of their ordinary lives.

Excavating part of St Martin in the Field's crypt they found at least one skeleton part of whose ribcage had been staved in (probably through accident) but who seems to have lived for some considrable time afterwards. Again a pathologist studying the remains said without painkillers how such a person lived any life was astonishing.

RE:
Living with pain
Can anyone say "opioid Addiction"

In various ways, it was common throughout history.
