ABOUT

Hi, my name is Sofia Aziz. Welcome to my website on Biomedical Egyptology.


What knowledge did the ancient Egyptians have of the anatomy of the body and its functions? Who were the Egyptian healers and doctors? How effective were their medical remedies and surgical procedures? Which deities were involved in healing? What do the medical papyri tell us? What was the role of magic in medicinal healing and how was it intrinsically intertwined with Egyptian ideology?


How do modern imaging techniques, nuclei analysis, proteomics and histology help us learn about people from the past?
