A killer of paupers, princes, and presidents, typhoid was an invisible threat in Victorian England and remains dangerous in many areas today.

Join Alice on a murky tour of Oxford’s underside: find out how doctors and engineers controlled typhoid to stop the disease from spreading in Alice’s city, and meet Oxford researchers to discover how sanitation, vaccination, and typhoid are evolving today.
