After 2.5 years of blogging, I’m excited to unveil a brand new look for The Chirurgeon’s Apprentice, complete with a new logo! Each of the symbols in the logo represent a story told on this site: A History of the Barber Pole; Syphilis: A Love Story; The Anatomy of a Broken Heart and The Falciform Amputation Knife.

I hope you enjoy the website’s facelift as much as I do!

To kick things off, I’ll be posting a brand new article later this week. I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Let’s just say it’s appropriately suited to your morbid tastes.
