Ten thousand years ago, life was different. People were nomadic, and their life spans were short. During this time, people practiced trepanning, one of the early human medical procedures. Today, the diseases that wiped out millions just a few hundred years ago have been completely eradicated thanks to developments in medicine. Readers explore some of the earliest medical discoveries, how medicine has developed, and how it continues to have an impact on modern society.
