Did you know that books used to be bound in human skin? And that some medieval doctors were called piss prophets? Did you know that coffin collars were placed around the necks of corpses in order to prevent them from being stolen by bodysnatchers in the 19th century? 

The past doesn’t just belong to historians. It belongs to everyone. In 2010, I started a blog called The Chirurgeon’s Apprentice so that I could share my knowledge of medical history with a wider audience. In addition to my blog, I now create content on various platforms, including TwitterInstagramFacebook, and YouTube. All of this takes a lot of time. I currently have no institutional affiliation, nor do I make any money off my online content. If you enjoy learning about the darker side of history (and have a morbid curiosity), please consider supporting me so that I can continue providing medical history content to people worldwide. 

HOW IT WORKS 
When you sign up, you will initially be charged by Patreon for your first contribution in order to verify your payment details. Afterwards, you will be charged at the beginning of each month. There are various perks on offer, too! Depending on your pledge, you may receive a personalized postcard, signed copy of my book The Butchering Art, and even a 15 minute video chat with me! Check the tier levels for more information.

And thank you in advance for your support.
