A description of medical practice in Shakespeare’s time and in his plays focusing on his son-in-law, the physician John Hall.

William Shakespeare’s daughter married the Stratford physician John Hall and this virtual tour visits his house, Hall’s Croft, which still stands, dips into his book of case studies, wonders at his remedies and the illnesses he cured, reflects on what he studied at the University of Cambridge and considers how the medical profession is depicted in his father-in-law’s plays.
