Ancient Egyptian medicine

Thursday, 21 February, 2013 - 20:15 to 21:45

How do we know how health and illness was experienced and understood by Egypt’s populations during her 3000 year civilization? Skeletal and mummified remains provide one source of knowledge but historians also examine Egypt’s literary sources, painting, sculpture, architecture and town planning, clothing, nutrition, agriculture, animal husbandry, commerce and travel. The ‘big picture’ may be more surprising than you imagine.
