Alice in Typhoidland: The Past and Present of Typhoid

Join Alice Liddell (Alice in Wonderland) on a tour of the past and present of typhoid control. Discover how Victorian doctors and scientists helped make typhoid visible and developed the first typhoid vaccines. Learn about the current challenges of typhoid across the world and what researchers in Oxford are doing to tackle it.  

Glide with us on a murky ride as we journey down the sewer hole into Oxford's underside - there is much to see in Typhoidland.

Two-part display and exhibition across two sites: the Weston Library and the History of Science Museum.
