Description

A block of bronze, surgical instruments that have been fused together by the heat from the masive volcanic eruption that occurred from Mount Vesuvius near the Roman city of Pompeii in Italy in the 1st century AD. They were uncovered during the 19th and 20th century excavations of the site and provide valuable clues about Roman medical history.
