'Europe's oldest prosthetic implant' found

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Archaeologists in Austria believe they have found Europe's oldest prosthetic implant - a sixth-century wooden foot.

The discovery was made in the grave of a man missing his left foot and ankle at Hemmaberg, southern Austria. At the end of his leg was an iron ring and remnants of a clump of wood and leather.
