The collections include prepared specimens, both bottled and plastinated, which allow students to revise visually problematic areas of anatomy. The model collection includes a series of wax embryology models from the Ziegler studio and anatomical models ranging from papier-mâché to the modern silicon copies. The department also houses a skeletal collection of over 400 archaeological and forensic skeletons, as well as a skeletal collection of identified individuals – used for research purposes.
