You may have followed in our members' newsletter, the developments and ongoing research taking place at Norton Priory Museum, in Runcorn, Cheshire. It is the most excavated medieval monastic site in Europe, and evidence of a form of Paget’s disease has been discovered in an unusually high number of the medieval skeletons uncovered at the Priory. You can see two of these on display in the museum. Multidisciplinary research is producing exciting results regarding the ancient skeletons, which will add to our understanding of the history of Paget’s disease and may inform clinical practice in the future. Members of the Paget’s Association and their family/friends joined the Paget’s Association at Norton Priory Museum and Gardens in September 2019, for a special Members’ Day. There were opportunities to ask questions regarding Paget’s disease and the research, as well as a guided tour. Members and their family and friends also explored the Walled Garden.
In July 2020 we are holding a Members' Event at the National Railway Museum in York - follow this link for details.
