Ancient Egyptian Prosthetic Toes
Yes, toes. The people studying them got some modern folks who are missing toes to try on the ancient prostheses, and one fake toe worked quite well. The other, not so much.
At the end of the article, there is a reference to another ancient prosthesis, a Roman leg, which was unfortunately destroyed in WWII!
Those Egyptians get more awesome all the time.
