The University of Uppsala was established by a papal bull in 1477. Over the past five centuries its various departments have collected a vast array of items that have been used for teaching or research. These items bare silent witness to the cultural history of each department and cumulatively of the University itself. Some mark not only fundamental milestones for Uppsala University and for Sweden, but for the history of science as a whole.
