DescriptionHippocrates and Galen might come to mind when you think of classical anatomy, but someone might have figured the human body out before he ever did. Someone on the other side of the planet.

Anatomists who lived during China’s Han Dynasty, a period when learning flourished, are thought to have first mapped the structure of the body (as opposed to function). Ancient scientists dissected bodies for thousands of years—the drawback is that too little evidence of it has surfaced, which explains why European texts have been the go-to for centuries. Medical scientist Vivien Shaw and her research team have now unearthed Chinese Mawangdui medical texts from some 2,200 years ago. That means the ghost of Hippocrates probably needs to take several seats.
