What the game of Operation would look like in the Middle Ages

Feast your eyes on a gruesome "wound man" from London's Wellcome Library's collection of medieval anatomy diagrams. This above wound man hails from the 1400s and offers all sorts of valuable advice on how to remove swords from his torso and extremities. And here are a few more of his colleagues from 1420-1430s Germany, 1675 Austria and South Germany (note the terrifically unsympathetic dog), 1678 England, and the 1530s. [Via Neatorama]
