MEDICINE IN ANCIENT EGYPT, PART 2

Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 7:00pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell


Join Dr. Stephen R. Phillips at 7:00pm on July 24 for Part 2 of his discussion about medicine in ancient Egypt!


For ages 10+


Did the ancient Egyptians understand human anatomy and did they practice medicine? The answer is yes.


Outlined in detail on several surviving ancient Egyptian papyri, surprisingly complex, and perhaps effective medical procedures, uncannily similar to medicine today, provide intriguing evidence as to the skill level of ancient Egypt’s

physicians.


Part II of this richly illustrated presentation takes us behind the scenes on a modern archaeology dig in Egypt, where we examine several actual cases from Dr. Steve’s recent excavations in the vast cemeteries surrounding the Great Pyramids and Sphinx. 


Highlights include our discovery of ancient Egyptian human skeletal remains that display the successful treatment of serious wounds, as well as direct evidence of diseases still extant in humankind today.
