Medicine in Ancient Egypt, Part II

The Dead Really Do Tell Tales

Presenter:  Stephen “Dr. Steve” Phillips, Ph.D.

University of Pennsylvania

Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

 After a brief review of his first program, Part II of this richly illustrated presentation takes us behind the scenes on a modern archaeology dig in Egypt, where we examine several actual cases from Dr. Steve’s recent excavations in the vast cemeteries surrounding the Great Pyramids and Sphinx.

Did the ancient Egyptians understand human anatomy and did they practice medicine?  The answer is yes.  Outlined in detail on several surviving ancient Egyptian papyri, surprisingly complex, and perhaps effective medical procedures, uncannily similar to medicine today, provide intriguing evidence as to the skill level of ancient Egypt’s physicians.  Highlights include our discovery of ancient Egyptian human skeletal remains that display the successful treatment of serious wounds, as well as direct evidence of diseases still extant in humankind today.

The Golden Age:

The Singers & Bands of the 1930s & 1940s

Presenter:  Herb Kaufman

The late 1930s through mid-1040s are the “Golden Age of the American Songbook.”  This is a nostalgic look at a musical “sentimental journey” back to the singers and big bands that had us “jumpin & jivein” at the theaters, ballrooms and dance halls.
