@drlindseyfitzharris • This artificial hand is nearly 500 years old. It dates from the 16th century. Most limbs were amputated in this era due to war injuries or accidents. This particular example consists of a metal casing which wrapped around the forearm stump and was secured by metal or leather straps. An internal mechanical structure (now missing) may have allowed the fingers basic movement. The fingers were created as a solid mass... Science Museum in London.
