Disease and everyday life in Ancient Egypt: the contribution of modern science

A lunchtime lecture by Professor Rosalie David OBE, Director of the KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology at the University of Manchester

In earlier centuries the unwrapping of a mummy was usually a social event, producing very little scientific evidence that could contribute to knowledge of one of the world's earliest civilisations.

Today however, scientific and biomedical techniques are used to examine mummies and provide new insight into disease, diet, medical treatments and religious customs in ancient Egypt.
This lecture will reveal the most recent research undertaken by the multi-disciplinary team at the Univeristy of Manchester.
