Mummies, magic, and medicine in ancient Egypt : multidisciplinary essays for Rosalie David by Campbell Price( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining approaches to ancient Egyptian religious expression, medical practice and the modern scientific study of human and material remains from Egypt and Sudan, this volume celebrates the multidisciplinary career of Professor Rosalie David OBE. The UK's first female Professor in Egyptology, Rosalie David's pioneering work at the University of Manchester on Egyptian mummies, magic and medicine has been of international importance. This volume presents research by a number of leading experts in their fields: recent archaeological fieldwork, new research on Egyptian human remains and unpublished museum objects along with reassessments of ancient Egyptian texts concerned with healing and the study of technology through experimental archaeology. Contributors try to answer some of Egyptology's most enduring questions - How did Tutankhamun die? How were the Pyramids built? How were mummies made? - along with less well-known puzzles. Rather than address these areas separately, the volume adopts the so-called 'Manchester method' instigated by Rosalie David and attempts to integrate perspectives from both traditional Egyptology and scientific analytical techniques. Much of this research has never appeared in print before, particularly that resulting from the Manchester Egyptian Mummy Project, set up in the 1970s. The resulting overview gives a good history of the discipline, illustrating how Egyptology has developed over the last forty years, and how many of the same big questions still remain. This book will be of use to researchers and students of archaeology or related disciplines with an interest in multidisciplinary approaches to understanding life and death in ancient Egypt and Sudan

"The preserved remains of other human beings hold a special fascination for the living.

"Illustrated with the haunting images of many of the cases discussed, Earthly Remains is a compelling book that will appeal to everyone's sense of mystery in the history and origins of our ancestors."--Jacket

Influence de l'état sanitaire des populations anciennes sur la mortalité en temps de peste : contribution à la paléoépidémiologie by Sacha Kacki( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Génératrice depuis le VIe siècle de notre ère de crises épidémiques récurrentes en Occident, la peste a profondémentmarqué l'histoire des sociétés européennes, tant sur le plan biologique que culturel, économique et politique. Sil'histoire des épidémies qu'elle a engendrées est aujourd'hui relativement bien connue, un certain nombre de questionssur ses caractéristiques épidémiologiques passées demeurent pour partie irrésolues. En particulier, le caractère sélectifou non de la mortalité par peste à l'égard de l'âge, du sexe et de l'état de santé préexistant des individus faitactuellement débat. À partir d'une approche anthropobiologique, le présent travail se propose de contribuer à cettediscussion. Il livre les résultats de l'étude d'un corpus de 1090 squelettes provenant, d'une part, de quatre sitesd'inhumation de pestiférés de la fin du Moyen Âge et du début de l'époque moderne et, d'autre part, de deuxcimetières paroissiaux médiévaux utilisés hors contexte épidémique. Cette étude révèle en premier lieu l'existenced'une signature démographique commune aux séries en lien avec la peste. Leur composition par âge et par sexe,distincte de celle caractérisant la mortalité naturelle, est au contraire en adéquation avec la structure théorique d'unepopulation vivante préindustrielle. L'examen de divers indicateurs de stress suggèrent par ailleurs que les victimes dela peste jouissaient, à la veille de leur décès, d'un meilleur état de santé que les individus morts en temps normal. Lesrésultats obtenus concourent à démontrer que les facteurs causals de ces lésions squelettiques, d'accoutuméresponsables d'une diminution des chances de survie, n'eurent au contraire qu'une influence mineure, si ce n'est nulle,sur le risque de mourir de l'infection à Yersinia pestis. Ce travail livre in fine un faisceau d'arguments convergents quitendent à prouver que les épidémies de peste anciennes furent à l'origine d'une mortalité non sélective, la maladiefrappant indistinctement les individus des deux sexes, de tous âges et de toutes conditions sanitaires
