Product description


Bruno Halioua and Bernard Ziskind's book fits into a long and fruitful tradition of writings on the more specialist aspects of ancient Egyptian culture written by non-Egyptologists who nevertheless have a strong interest in Egypt (e.g. dentists writing about Egyptian teeth, carpenters on Egyptian furniture-making, engineers on ancient construction techniques, etc.). The authors set out to synthesize our existing knowledge and ideas on the subject of Pharaonic medicine, and the result is a book that is well researched, accessible, and an interesting read.--Ian Shaw, University of Liverpool, editor of "The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt"
