Versailles
Used a criminals dead body to discover the skeleton, showing Galen could be wrong, eg, humans only have one jaw bone, not three.

Showed Galen was wrong by showing that the heart pumps blood around and the veins contain the blood so the blood must flow around the body, and therefore does not get used up as Galen suggested.
