Surgical equipment including leg saws (for amputations) and trephines (cylindrical bladed instruments for creating bore holes in bones such as the skull). These date from around 1850, England. Surgery in this era pre-antiseptis and anaesthesia was high risk with very low patient survival rates. However it went through considerable advances during the nineteenth century.
