Opened in 2019, the Wellcome Galleries at the Science Museum, London, bring together the personal collection of Henry Wellcome and the Museum’s own medical holdings to provide the world’s most extensive display of the history of medicine. Arranged in ten chapters that reflect the interests of the curators, the book covers topics including protheses, military medicine, iron lungs and psychiatry, and illustrates artefacts as diverse as moles’ feet amulets (to ward off cramp) and a 21st century athlete’s running blade.
