Ancient artifacts from the Wellcome Collection in London, have been recently documented by photographer Thom Atkinson.

This gives all of us who can’t physically visit a chance to view this stockpile of curiosities. What a treasure trove of the bizarre it is! Ancient torture devices, a witch hunter’s manual, preserved tattoos and mechanical vibrators all neatly photographed against a clean white background.
