This richly illustrated lecture introduces ancient Egypt’s medical world. We meet history’s earliest documented physician, Imhotep, and the earliest documented dentist, Hesy-re. We examine the role of magic and herbs in ancient Egyptian medicine, look at cases outlining specific surgical intervention and we examine an actual case of what was perhaps successful trauma surgery – as evidenced on human skeletal remains recovered during recent excavations in the cemeteries. Sponsored by the Friends of the Yardley-Makefield library. Programs are free and open to the public.
