From Wounded Fairies to Sweet Fanny Adams

The medical profession and criminal law have worked together over the millennia, from the Ancient Egyptians to the present day. Doctors have been asked to interpret wounds since antiquity. In From Wounded Fairies to Sweet Fanny Adams Dr. Peter Moore looks at how doctors got involved in crime, examining the accused or checking injuries, dating from the Edwin Smith papyrus, written in ancient Egypt in about 1600 BC which lists 48 cases involving wounds. He reveals how it was illegal to kill or maim a fairy in the time of Henry III, and how the Tudors and Stuarts didn't bother with police and doctors, but just boiled criminals. Charting the development of forensic science over the centuries, Dr. Peter Moore explains how the Police medical service gradually became more structured by the mid Nineteenth century, with the introduction of a Chief Surgeon and several Divisional Surgeons, caring for officers and providing medical care to prisoners.
