Table of Contents below:

I am sure this will be the first of many and that more colleagues from other countries can contribute.

My article here is a generalistic view of the most prevalent diseases in ancient Egypt, focusing on those that are distinguishable in human remains, medical texts and art.

- dental
- dermatological
- ophtalmological
- infectious
- trauma
not mentioning women's and children's, which would make a whole volume or thesis on it...

If you want more information on how to contribute to future volumes, here are the Guidelines for Contributors.

The Institute has also a Summer Course of Egyptian Hierogliphic (Middle Egyptian) in 2012 (in Portuguese), with introduction about the ancient Egyptian language and writing.
