In the mood to hear something weird? Archaeologists recently discovered the 2,200-year-old remains of a man with a deformed knee attached to a prosthetic leg tipped with a horse hoof in an ancient Chinese tomb.
Discovery News reports:
The prosthetic leg was “made of poplar wood; it has seven holes along the two sides with leather tapes for attaching it to the deformed leg,” the archaeologists wrote. “The lower part of the prosthetic leg is rendered into a cylindrical shape, wrapped with a scrapped ox horn and tipped with a horsehoof, which is meant to augment its adhesion and abrasion...The severe wear of the top implies that it has been in use for a long time.”
