No, this is not a second gallery of Medieval torture devices. Despite how they may appear, the items in the gallery below were actually used by doctors. Of course, a lot of medicine back then involved hacking off limbs or bloodletting, so naturally there are a lot of sharp items. The number one thing that we learned from creating this gallery is that no matter how scared we may be of going to the dentist in 2015 it pales in comparison to what it was like in 1515.
