The Medical Side of Porthcurno

Citizen Curator Explores Medicine at the College

Citizen Curator Susan Kersley brings her knowledge of medical matters to an exploration of the medical issues encountered in Porthcurno during the years of the engineering college in a video.  It can be found on our YouTube channel.

A unique exploration into an aspect of Porthcurno’s history, the medical angle is not usually illuminated.

The Citizen Curators programme is run by Cornwall Museums Partnership in partnership with seven museums, including PK Porthcurno, and is funded by the Museums Association’s Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund. It is led by Dr Tehmina Goskar, the curator and director of the Curatorial Research Centre.
