It introduces the reader to a unique collection of military artefacts taken from military campaigns such as the Peninsular and First Carlist War. Matthew Kaufman, Professor of Anatomy at the University of Edinburgh, brings together a substantial collection of osteological preparations displaying the effects of musket-balls, sabres and other weapons of the early nineteenth century, and their treatment by the military surgeons of the day.
