Join us on a gastronomic journey as we revisit the collection of 12th century recipes discovered and analysed by a team based at Durham University and McGill University in Canada, in 2013. These form the earliest known culinary recipe collection from medieval Europe and pre-date the famous Forme of Cury by around 230 years!

Chronic pain is a huge health challenge. It is the biggest reason people in the UK see their GP. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognised it as a priority disease in 2019. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has also recently accepted that current chronic pain medications have limited long-term benefit, and in fact carry serious safety concerns. That is why reducing opioid prescriptions (for non-cancer pain) to zero by 2024 is a priority for Public Health England.
