Summary
Why was a skin graft used on a mummy? Was there a state healthcare system for pyramid workers? How could Bes the happy dwarf help you with childbirth? When we think of ancient Egypt, we think of the gods, the pharaohs, and the pyramids. However, life for the average Egyptian was very different from this glamorous perception, and not so very unrecognisable for us today. This book tells the history of the ordinary population of ancient Egypt, using the stories of real people - often strange, at times amusing, and ultimately very recognisable
