Selection of Tudor and medieval implements used for personal hygiene and dated between 1200s-1500s. Although medieval doctors were uncertain whether bathing was good for you ('in time of pestilence avoid baths'), objects such as these metal toothpicks, tweezers, earscoops, shears, scissors and razor show that medieval and Tudor Londoners cared about personal grooming.
