Ancient Egyptians endured a wide variety of threats to health and life, including trauma, acute and chronic infections, parasites and tumors. Their treatments for these were amulets and magic, prayers and numerous medical prescriptions, none very effective. This lecture will illustrate diseases and treatments from Egyptian tombs, mummies and papyri.
