Knight Hospitaller Medical Instruments 1570-80

I have been commissioned to write and perform a gallery performance for a museum as a Hospitaller in the time of the Order of St John's tenure of Malta - the years to be interpreted are roughly 1570-1580.

The museum has asked if I can source any replica medical instruments that would have been used at this time, so any suggestions regarding suppliers, makers, websites etc please pass on to me, and I will pass them onto the relevant person.

There is a budget for this but that would need to be negotiated between the museum and the supplier, I am simply posting the request here as a member of this august body!

Either post on the board or feel free to PM if preferred.

You might be best joining the 'Chirurgeons' Yahoo discussion group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Chirurgeons/ and asking them the question

The group describes itself as 'History of Medicine Group for Living History and Re-enactment Medical Practitioner' - I have been a member for a few years and these guys know all there is to know about medical re-enactment...

Hope this helps

Thanks Bevis,

I am already a member of that group, as I portray both a Georgian and Victorian Quack Doctor, and I did post on there and passed on their suggestions
