From trepanned skulls of the Neolithic period; to ancient medical texts of Egypt, India, China, and Rome; and all the way to modernday thought-controlled prosthetics, A History of Medicine in 50 Objects is a fascinating visual excursion through humanity's understanding of illness, nature, and the human body. Though most civilizations blamed spirits for a host of ailments for centuries (or even millennia), early doctors occasionally hit on a successful treatment, even if they misattributed spiritual or mystical properties to a purely scientific solution. Explore the intriguing, inspiring, or sometimes downright barbaric practices of mankind throughout the ages - and you'll never look at medicine the same way again! (SM)
