Weird Job Wednesday: The Plague Doctor


Or Way Back When Wednesday.
Plague Doctors were introduced during the Middle Ages and were specifically hired by towns that had many plague victims in times of epidemics. They were paid by he city and so treated everyone - the rich and the poor.

A plague doctor would have worn a beak-like costume in his role as a specialized costume designed to protect him. The protective suit consisted of a heavy fabric overcoat that was waxed, a mask of glassed eye openings and a cone shaped like a beak to hold scented substances. Some of the scented materials were amber, balm-mint leaves, camphor, cloves, laudanum, myrrh, rose petals, and storax.  the "Beak Doctors" believed the herbs would counter the "evil" smells of the plague and prevent them from becoming infected. A wooden cane pointer was used to help examine the patient without touching.
