Sensational Bodies: London’s Golden Age Of Anatomy (Guided Walk)


When: Wednesday 14th March, 2pm

Where: Holborn tube station

Join us on a walk through the streets of London to learn about anatomical discoveries in the 18th Century! This was a time when, with the likes of physicians William and John Hunter leading the way, London was a hub for exciting advancements in the field.

UCL Anatomy Society are excited to present “Sensational Bodies: London’s Golden Age Of Anatomy” – a guided walk led by Dr Richard Barnett – a doctor, historian, author and broadcaster (

Dr Barnett studied medicine before becoming a historian and studying a PhD in the history of medicine at UCL. His books offer fascinating insight into the history of dentistry, medicine and surgery. This guided walk is based on his international best-seller, Medical London, and offers a unique perspective of London’s history.

Come rain or shine, hope to see you there!

The Anatomy of Facial Reconstruction

UCL Anatomy Society are very lucky to host Professor Iain Hutchison, a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, who is going to give a talk about his most interesting cases.

In 2000, Professor Hutchison launched the charity, Saving Faces, which is dedicated to funding research into this rather overlooked field of medicine.

The talk will include paintings by Mark Gilbert of patients before, after, and even during their surgery, which is part of an art project by the charity. We will hear about how facial reconstruction is conducted: how 3D templates of the bones are crafted and incorporated into the operation, and where the future of facial reconstruction lies. He will also touch upon the psychological impact of facial reconstruction, and the influence of the social environment of patients on their perceptions of their faces.

***Ideal for surgery-enthusiasts, psychology-lovers and anyone interested in Med-Tec***

All welcome. UCL Anatomy Society membership required.
