History of medicine brought to life.

A660037, Science Museum, London.

A splendid new Science Museum website features a wealth of information on the history of medicine, alongside a range of pictures and photography ranging from the aesethically-pleasing (I liked the tray of artificial eyes) to the utterly gruesome. The images are bound to be a useful scholarly resource, but the site as a whole could offer a useful reference point for those not especially in the know about medicinal history. Just what the doctor ordered on a cold and frosty morning! Click here to visit it.
