Unexplored Riches in Medical History – in action!

I’ve got something exciting to share with you today. The Unexplored Riches in Medical History project has now been captured on film!

In a short video that has been produced by the Wellcome Trust, Ian Wakeling, the head of The Children’s Society Archive, gives a really great introduction to the Unexplored Riches in Medical History project.


Have a watch and see us all in action! And, more importantly, see some of the wonderful archive documents that we’re working on.

  1. Fascinating work being done – so good to know these valuable historical insights into our past can be protected and utilized. Inspiring work!

    • Dear Val,
      Thanks! By the end of the project a large part of the archive will be a lot easier to use and preserved for the future, which will be a great result. I have to thank the rest of the project team and our volunteers; we couldn’t do it without them.

  2. I have used the case files for research for my dissertation and it would not have been possible without the work of the team of archivists, conservators and volunteers at the Children’s Society, making the case files available. A brilliant resource.

    • Dear Rosemary,
      Thank you for your comments! We’re glad we could help you with your research. It was lovely having you here.
