As a Police Surgeon and Dundee’s Medical Officer, Dr Charles Templeman saw first-hand the battles Dundonians faced in the 1800s both on the streets and with the many diseases ravaging the city.

From attending murders, injuries and accidents, to establishing Dundee’s TB Hospital, Dr Templeman was committed to improving the health of the city. Join us at Verdant Works for this talk on the life and times of Dr Templeman, as well as some of the most sensational cases he worked on and the legacy he left in Dundee.

Dark Dundee‘s talk includes all the gory details of Dr. Templeman’s work on tackling TB in the early 1900s, as well as his time as the Police Surgeon for Dundee in the late 1800s where he dealt with all sorts of crime and criminals, including several murder cases.
