A collection of bronze and iron surgical instruments has been discovered in what archaeologists think are the remains of a doctor's treatment room dating from Roman times in Nea Paphos, Cyprus. The discovery of the artefacts puts the date of the collapse of the medical building back by about 200 years earlier than previously thought.

The finds include a thin long spoon, pliers and instruments thought to be used to set broken bones. Five of the metal instruments are made of bronze and one is made of iron.
