Humorous Humours

We are looking forward to our The Good The Bad and The Yucky event at Aston Hall Museum, Birmingham in the summer holidays.  Mrs History Jane and Rachel will be competing for who has the baddest, best or yuckiest historic object to show the visitors – audience participation mandatory!

Hippocrates of Ancient Greece believed that people could be put into four categories, each with a different temperament: sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic.  These were represented by a yucky liquid from the human body called humours: blood, yellow bile, black bile and phlegm.

Which emoji character do you think represents which humour?! 😊😡😐😟

Join us at Aston Hall on the 24 August 2016 @AstonHallMuseum @BM_AG.
