|Roman Surgical Kit|
from the time of Christ
The Roman surgeons possessed a great array of finely-fashioned instruments with which they could skillfully operate and extract arrows and other missiles. The surgeons operated with steel-bladed knives and used them, among other things, to perform amputations. In their operations, bleeding was stopped with the help of artery forceps and stitches, and the edges of the wounds were carefully stitched together.
