People everywhere face illness, injury and disease, and all cultures value health and healing. These universal concerns and the different understandings of the causes and meanings of illness are revealed through the Horniman collections: from amulets, charms and even tattooing instruments that protect against misfortune and disease, to medicines and shamanic or magical equipment used in healing.
