Prosthetics in Ancient Egypt

In this article by NBC, they cover the advancement of science that ancient egyptians had in order to make prosthetic toes. Its interesting because they were carved out of wood and would be straped on to the foot. Also how embalmers took the time to recreate the body so that the person may have those missing limbs in the afterlife.
