The eighth Andrew Barnett & Trevor Genge Memorial Lecture takes place on Thursday 12th October at 7:30 pm in St. Andrew's Church, Bilston Street, Sedgley. The speaker is Kevin Goodman a medical historian with a vast knowledge of disease and illness from medieval times to the early C20th.

Kevin delves into his own book on body snatchers and grave robbers in the Black Country to tell stories and display appropriate objects on the subject.

It is Kevin's first visit to the Society and his presentation promises to be quite special.

Admission is £2 – exact amount appreciated.
