EPIDEMICS in Ancient Egypt - A Concise Overview on Ancient Survival Strategies in Uncertain Times


 

Epidemics have afflicted people for millennia. They express a growing civilization and reminds us of our vulnerability. They set cultures back again and again at regular or irregular intervals, forcing them to look for the underlying causes. For us who are privileged to study the legacies of the Ancient Egyptians, it becomes more and more apparent that even then, there was an almost holistic approach to dealing with sickness - individual diseases and epidemics. The Ancient Egyptians were good observers and learned to live with the dangers over time. They did this both with the help of magic and with advanced medical treatments for the people of that time. Looking at Ancient Egyptian medicine from a historical perspective is challenging, especially in today's world. This book is aimed at beginners and those readers seeking a concise but precise overview of treatment methods and their textual and archaeological evidence. This book gives you an introduction to the preventive and curative treatments used in Ancient Egypt and also takes a look at the regularly recurring plagues that set people back but never brought them to their knees.

Victoria Goldwyn is a German Egyptologist who has gained vast experience of the Ancient Egyptians' life through many trips and archaeological excavations throughout Egypt. Her books mainly describe the fascinating world of magical manifestations that we rediscover for ourselves today.
