Discussing disfigurement through historical images

Our expert panel discuss what it was like to live with disfigurements in years gone by and what it is like today.

To coincide with the Mosaic story Facial discrimination, we invited historian Richard Barnett and Henrietta Spalding, Head of Advocacy at the charity Changing Faces, to discuss four historical illustrations of disfigurement from Wellcome Images and Richard's book, The Sick Rose

You can see a gallery of the images discussed on our Google+ page.

The conversation was recorded and streamed live from the Mosaic studio on 26 June 2015.
