Ancient Egyptian Activities for Kids

As Egypt grew and prospered, some of the settlements along the Nile blossomed into towns and cities, with districts for temples, tradesmen, artisans, and laborers. But most people lived in rural areas and villages. At most, 5 percent of the people were city dwellers.

Walled or fortified towns, common elsewhere, were rare in Egypt. Cities and towns were hot, dry, and dusty, teeming with people and animals. Streets were cramped and narrow. Flies and biting insects swarmed and buzzed. Smoke from dung-fueled cooking fires hung heavily in the air. Although clean in their homes and persons, the Egyptians, like other ancient peoples (and some modern ones), saw any space outside their front doors as a convenient dump.

Trash and garbage were carted off to the nearest canal, thrown into alleys or temporary pits, or piled in heaps wherever there was space. Heated by the broiling sun, rubbish heaps quickly became noxious pest- and vermin-ridden nightmares. Once the Egyptians domesticated the cat (during the Middle Kingdom), urban conditions improved. Cats quickly went to work killing rodents and other pests in alleys, dumps, homes, and granaries, improving health and preserving precious food supplies.

Egyptian Death Masks

Ancient Egyptians believed in the concept of life after death. The death masks for men consisted of red paint tones while yellow was for women. The death mask was a part of the preserving the dead and funeral rites. After the body of the deceased was carefully mummified, a sculpted mask was put on the face of the dead.The ancient Egyptians believed that this mask would strengthen the spirit of the dead person and also protect its soul from the evil spirits. These death masks showcased the status of the person in the soiety before his death. The best known mask is that of Tutankhamun's burial mask which was made of gold.In the event of the death of a person of royal class, the mask had expensive jewels and lapis lazuli on it.

Egyptian Death Masks

Death masks were also made of linen or papyrus. These masks were then painted to resemble gold. The masks had eyebrows, nose, hair styles and jewellery painted on them. The very objective of the death mask was enabling the dead to have a face in the afterlife so that the spirit can identify the body.The ancient Egyptians comnsidered the death of a person as a new journey in afterlife. It was believed the people that the body of a person consists of three souls namely, ka, ba and akh. It was said that if the physical body of the deceased was kept properly, then these souls would unite.

The dead person's body was preserved by the process of mummification. In the tombs of the dead, water and food was kept so that the soul is not starved. Other items kept in the tomg include games, jewellery, model figures called shabti or such things that the dead used during his lifetime.The death rituals comprise of embalming and mummification of the dead. The body was placed in a man-shaped coffin and was ornamented to resemble the dead. The coffins were later on kept in protective stone caskets. An important ritual was the opening of the mouth. The priest would perform ritual of opening of the mouth.This was believed to enable the dead to be reborn in the afterlife and possess the power of speech, mobility and the ability of eating.

Egyptian Death Masks

Funeral procession was crucial part of the death rituals. During the death rituals the priest wore a mask of the jackal headed god Anubis.Things or goods used by the dead during his lifetime were placed next to him in the tomb. Funerary literature was kept with the deceased that was said to comprise of spells and instructions to guide him afterlife. In some ancient Egyptian burials, funerary boats were a part of the custom.

Ancient Egyptian Fun Facts

The ancient Egyptians had great lives and in spite of working so hard, they never forgot leisure and recreation. Thus, equal or sometimes even more importance was given to pursuing leisure activities. Some of the activities which the ancient Egyptians pursued were:

Fishing : Although fishing was a means of subsistence for some, it was a pastime as well. Drawings from the Old and New kingdom display fishing in a recreational context. As a matter of fact, this evidence suggests that the Egyptians were the first to fish for pleasure. Many different fishing artifacts such as rods and various types of hooks have been unearthed to show the versatility of their equipment. Fishing for survival was traditionally carried out with a net or spear, while the angler used a rod and line.

Ancient Egyptian Fun Facts

Hunting : Javelin throwing was mostly associated with hunting for both sport and the provision of food. However, with the arrival of farming and agriculture, hunting for survival became outdated in ancient Egypt. However, hunting continued to be practiced a sport especially by the noble class and pharaohs.Lions were hunted with the help of a bow and arrow from a chariot.

One of the archaeologists JH Breasted, recorded the ancient records of Egypt which pointed out the fact that Amenhotep III hunted and killed as many as 102 fierce lions Likewise, archery was a very popular sports recreation in Egypt; although it seems to have been practiced more by royalty for entertainment purposes than for practical means.

Sport : The ancient Egyptians enjoyed their sport. In fact, many athletic events and some team sports have descended from this land long time back. One team sport was very similar to hockey. Wielding clubs made of palm branches, they would hit a ball made of leather stuffed with papyrus and stitched. The bow and arrow was not only used in hunting and warfare but as sport as well. One of the oldest sports, archery was practiced in ancient Egypt.

The contestants were judged on accuracy on the target as well as strength to pull the bow. Additionally, the Nile provided calm waters for another of ancient Egypt's more popular sports namely swimming and rowing. Some of the wealthier classes had pools built for princes to learn and practice the sport.

Just chilling out : Apart from the above stated activities and sports that ancient Egyptians indulged in, there were some other activities which did not involve any rigorous physical activity. The ancient Egyptians played a variety of games which were different for adults and children. The children mostly played board games but occasionally also played with toys made especially for the little children.

Since boards games of all quality have been discovered it is needless to say that the games were played by all classes of people in Ancient Egypt. The most popular of these was the game Senet especially with the wealthier males of the society. Senet was a popular Ancient Egyptian board game. This game symbolized the struggle of good against evil. The evil forces tried to stop you from reaching the Kingdom of the god Osiris. The rules of this game were very complex.

It consisted of a board with 30 holes, 3 rows and 10 columns. Most of the games used 7 pawns, sticks or knucklebones for each of the two players but some only had 5. During the New Kingdom, the game of Senet had acquired a religious and magical interpretation which symbolized the passage of the deceased through the other world with his resurrection dependent upon his/her ability to win the game.

Music was an integral part of both Egyptian culture and religion in spite of not having any written record of annotated music. As a matter of fact, it was believed that music pleased the gods and mortals alike and nearly any festival or banquet included musicians. Many depictions and artifacts exist including a number of instruments that have been preserved.

In addition to these, ancient Egypt sports also included lengthy marathons which are a part of a number of ancient Egyptian texts. Marathons played a part in the coronation festivities of pharaohs throughout most ancient Egyptian history.

Ancient Egyptian Family

Ancient Egyptian Family Life

ancient egyptian family tree

The Egyptians highly valued marriage and family. The basic family unit was the nuclear family of father, mother, and children. Households often included unmarried or widowed female relatives, providing support for them and gaining extra hands for childcare and housework. Couples wanted as many healthy children as possible. If a married couple was unable to have children, they often divorced. Childless couples sometimes adopted children. Women had a great deal of freedom, independence, and status under law and custom.

Ancient Egyptian Family


Unlike women of most ancient societies, they could own or rent property, inherit wealth, own slaves, leave property to their children, take legal cases to court on their own, operate businesses, work outside the home, and live alone without a male guardian. Their lives were not easy, though. Girls were married by age 12 to 14, as soon as they could have children. Many babies died in infancy, so it was important to make the most of a woman’s fertile years. Marriage was an agreement between a man and a woman to live together and have children. There was no official ceremony.

Divorces, separations, and remarriages all occurred. Adultery was punished harshly, especially in women. Polygamy (a man taking multiple wives) was accepted, but in practice only wealthy men had multiple wives. Polygamy was too expensive for the average working man. A married woman was called “mistress of the house.” She was responsible for child care, cooking, hauling water, grinding grain, baking bread, brewing beer, spinning and weaving, making and repairing clothing, and tending the shrines of domestic gods and goddesses. Wealthy woman supervised many servants.

Pregnancy and childbirth were extremely dangerous for both mother and baby. Physicians could offer little help. Pregnant women recited magical spells and prayers, made offerings to Bes, Taweret, and Bastet, and wore protective charms and amulets. A woman gave birth in a squatting or kneeling position, balanced over a platform. A midwife stood by to help. Afterwards, the woman and her child had to leave home for several days for purification in a special “birth tent.” Similar practices are still enforced in many societies around the world.


Ancient Egypt Crops

The Egyptians were one of the first groups on earth to begin farming, probably around 10,000 BC, but definitely by 5200 BC. At first people farmed by just digging a hole in the ground for each seed with a stick, as you do when you plant a vegetable garden in your back yard. But that's hard work, and slow. It is particularly hard in Egypt, because the heavy, clayey soil laid down by the Nile floods is hard to make furrows in.

Ancient Egypt Crops

So by around 3000 BC people in Egypt had invented the animal-drawn plow, which made planting a lot easier.As soon as the flood began to recede the Ancient Egyptians ploughed the soil ready for sowing. They had hand ploughs or larger ones that were pulled by oxen. Seeds were then sown into the newly ploughed soil. Goats and other animals then walked over the fields to push the seeds into the ground. Crops grown included wheat, barley, flax, onions, leeks, garlic, beans, lettuce, lentils, cabbages, radishes, turnips, grapes, figs, plums and melons.

There were two seasons that affected farming: growing season and harvest season. In the harvest season you may not have been able to harvest the wheat you wanted because your landlord may have made you cut his first. The tools used in ancient Egypt agriculture included: plows, sickles, hoes, forks, scoops, baskets, shaduf, skiffs, and sieves. The farmers also used cattle, oxen, donkey, and goats to aid in the cultivation of their fields. In the cultivation of grain, there were eight steps that the ancient farmer knew as well as he knew his own land. The cultivated land was ploughed with a wooden axe.

Ancient Egypt Crops

The fruit grown consisted of dates, figs, grapes, pomegranates, and melons. Due to the wonderful variety of flowers grown in ancient Egypt, bees were able to pollinate and produce honey. The pharaoh got the rich peasants to do the farm work on the rich lands. The peasants worked as either reapers or gleaners. The reapers went through the fields first and they did work such as plowing the field to loosen the dirt for the seeds to go in or they would winnow. Winnowing means to get the debris off of grain.The ancient Egyptians were thorough in their cultivation of grain, as it was their main staple.

Barley and emmer were used to make bread and beer. Excessive grain was exported to neighboring countries. This exportation of grain allowed the Egyptian treasury to accumulate income. Some exporting of crops also took place; as far as agricultural products are concerned, mostly grains were exported. ox, cattle, and donkeys were used to pull equipment and pigs, sheep, and goats were sometimes used cover seeds, so that the task needn't be done by hand.


Ancient Egypt Craftsmen

Egypt knew a group of craft industries since ages old, also tells us that all the historical sources and archaeological discoveries that the ancient Egyptians had they make the practice of many of the craft as an industry, textiles, pottery and stone, the ancient Egyptian excelled in those industries as called for by the need for the development of society, the simple they live.

 And adopted the craft in ancient Egypt on locally available materials such as palm and its products, and the trees of different, and animal products, such as lint, wool and leather, as well as stones, mud and minerals such as gold, silver and copper, has been characterized by those industries precision and innovation process efficiency and level of aesthetic high. Has shown corresponding skill super amazing Industries are greatest accuracy, whether as an inventor or used for other inventions. This dexterity appeared in three or four different areas: workshops ownership and state industries, temples, workshops, and special workshops.

Male comes ownership through workshops and through the effects of the signals in the texts and through the titles of those responsible. Thus, we find that Ramesses Palace in city "Brramcis" it contains extensive facilities dedicated to the manufacture of weapons, vehicles and equipment necessary for the military invasions of the Kings. As well as we knew from Papyrus reached us from the documents workshops King Marine in "drape" in the Middle Kingdom of the existence of the organization of workshops, equipment repair them. Bulk of these sources are landscapes on the walls of the tombs of senior officials who were responsible for the management of these workshops: For example noted by some officers of the graves families eighteenth and nineteenth to the arms industry in Memphis.






 
Many of the elite in the city of Thebes, who were charged with the functions of religion in the Temple of Amon at Karnak they were also oversee the workshops many of the sculpture and jewelery, antiques and furniture industry and manufacturing saddles and others were all present in the scope of the Temple of Amun, and to remind them, for example, the minister Rukh Mi Ra. As for the workshops, we find that the old state terraces rich in particular represent the views of this technical professions.

Egyptian Writing
Egyptians invented one of the world’s first writing systems,  using a series of images, symbols, and pictures called  hieroglyphics (hy-ruh-GLIH-fiks).   Each symbol represented one or more sounds in the Egyptian  language.Egyptian hieroglyphics used picture symbols to represent sounds.

 Egypt’s Great Temples

Egyptian architects are known not only for the pyramids bu also for their magnificent temples.  The temples were lavishly designed with numerous statues  and beautifully painted walls and pillars.  Sphinxes and obelisks were usually found near the  entrances to the temples.

The Temple of Karnak was Egypt’s largest temple. Built mainly to honor Amon-Re, the sun god, Karnak was  one of Egypt’s major religious centers for centuries. Over the years, pharaohs added to the temple’s many  buildings. This illustration shows how Karnak’s great hall may have looked during an ancient festival.






Egyptian Art

Ancient Egyptians were masterful artists  and many of their greatest works are found  in either the temples or the tombs of the  pharaohs.   Most Egyptians, however, never saw these  paintings, because only kings, priests, or  other important people could enter these  places. Egyptian paintings depict a variety of subjects,  from crowning kings to illustrating religious  rituals to showing scenes from daily life.

  The paintings also have a particular style, with  people drawn as if they were twisting as they  walked, and in different sizes depending upon  their stature in society. In contrast, animals  appear more realistically. The Egyptians were also skilled stone and metal  workers, creating beautiful statues and jewelry.  Much of what we know about Egyptian art  and burial practices comes from the tomb  of King Tutankhamen, one of the few  Egyptian tombs that was left untouched by  raiders looking for valuables.

Temples of Ancient Egypt


Grandfather, father, son - A comparison of mortuary temple.On the West Bank in Luxor many of the New Kingdom pharaohs built their mortuary temples. These would be vehicles both for the worship of the King after he died and became a God and additionally they were cult temples. They were used for events like the Feast of the Valley. Thereby ensuring continuity of worship at the temple, for many hundreds of years.It is interesting to contrast the styles of the various pharaohs and the condition of the temples today. For this very personal and subjective analysis I have chosen the mortuary temples of Seti I, Rameses II and Merenptah.

The nice thing about these three temples is that they have few visitors. After trying to view Hatshepsut's temple with its hoards of chattering tourists following the harassed tour guides with their umbrellas and clip boards. It is pleasant to be in a different tour of Egypt, to stand in the quiet and be the only tourist admiring the site.I love the temple of Seti I; it is one of my favourite sites. You get a picture of a very religious man from this temple. Anxious to adore the Gods as much as possible. A filial man who honoured his own father within the complex, providing him with the mortuary temple Rameses I did not have time to build himself.

The current site has recently been superbly restored and is a total joy to visit. With clear signs and the temple layout provided on a clear map, this temple is now one of the most interesting for the discerning visitor. You enter from the side; the entrance pylon being ruined now and the door way bricked up. However standing in the remains of the gateway and looking along the axis it is easy to get a picture of the complex.

 








The temple palace to the side has also been restored and I love to take people to the site of the window of appearances. Children especially love to pretend to be pharaoh and award collars of gold and golden flies to the plebs (parents) below. It is hard not be moved as you stand there and imagine the triumphant general and long serving civil servant getting their rewards from the king.Passing through the second courtyard the restoration team have planted up the avenue. It gives it the feel of ancient Deir el Bahri with its potential of shady groves. The enclosed part of the temple has many, many chapels dedicated to the various Gods and carries most of the surviving decoration. But here is no boastful general with an army of spin doctors decorating an ego centric mortuary temple but relief after relief is of Seti adoring the Gods. Much of this relief work in the inner parts of the temple is in raised relief and very reminiscent of his work at Abydos.. There is a walk way round the boundary wall and having gone through the temple your return to the exit along this wall. The view of the outside of the temple is exactly the same as the inside relief after relief of Seti worshiping the Gods.The overall impression is of a pious man who took his religious duties seriously. There are no battle scenes, no prisoners about to have their heads bashed in. I find it a very peaceful temple.Moving on to his son's mortuary temple, the Ramasseum. Firstly I have to confess a dislike for Rameses II which does colour my view. I mean the guy wouldn't know artistic merit if it hit him in the face. Yes he knew big and yes he knew quantity. Quality however was not his strong point; his big give away is the use of incised relief everywhere. Raised relief takes a lot longer and Ramses couldn't be bothered with that. Let's get it up and covered with decoration as soon as possible. Having said that I do like the temple. Actually having said all the things about the wonderful restoration work at Seti I temple I actually like the Ramasseum for its deserted, unkempt look. The first courtyard consists of sand and tall clumps of grass, much of the temple and statuary is ruined. It has a peculiar charm of its own with the graffiti of ancient visitors including that of Belzoni. I like to stand in the deserted first courtyard and recite Shelley's poem. Especially the lines "Nothing besides remains. Round the decayOf the Colossal wreck, boundless and bareThe lone and level sands stretch far away."The fallen statue of Rameses is without doubt a truly impressive piece of engineering. I am particularly impressed with the way the nemes head cloth is shown by getting the granite to be in smooth and matt stripes.

 



 When you think about the tools available to them at this time it is amazing what they achieved.The wall decoration is of course the battle of Kadesh; it is a bit like the emperors new clothes to see the scenes. You know he didn't win but you are carried away by his version of events. The other thing in abundance is pictures of his children. Well he did have a lot of them but they are everywhere. Finally in the innermost rooms we get some religious scenes but mostly it is Rameses that dominates the reliefs in this temple. The colour is spectacular and I can never tire of looking up at the column capitals and admiring the rich and colourful designs. I can't understand why this temple has fallen out of favour as a place to visit.Poor old Merenptah, it must have seemed an age waiting for the throne. Firstly 12 of his older brothers had to die; he must have wondered would he also miss the chance as Rameses II went on and on. The relief as he finally mounted the throne. But he was already elderly and with life expectancy much lower than today he was taking no chances. His temple is much smaller and he reused blocks from the temple of Amenhotep III in his mortuary temple. This is not actually as bad as it seems because it is suspected that the first temple had already been partially destroyed by the flood water. So it was just a case of lifting stuff that had already fallen not actually destroying it. Although his temple is much smaller it follows a similar pattern to that of his father and grandfather.Today it is very ruined but it has been superbly restored by the Swiss Institute. 

 



They have taken the idea of posting metal plaques with a picture of the relief and an outline of the block you are looking at. It is a terrific idea and makes even very ruined blocks come alive.Having said that little remains of the temple but the layout is well defined by the restorers and it is not difficult to visualise the complete temples. I personally felt the quality was better than Ramses, there was use of raised relief and the decoration as a whole was less brash. All that I could see on display was religious scenes although with so much missing there well could have been a similar attempt at self glorification. But you didn't get that impression.The huge black granite Steele recording the existence of Israelites was truly impressive. This was reused by Merenptah and on the reverse it is inscribed by Amenhotep III. This stele records the earliest mention of the Israelites as Merenptah describes his subjection over foreign peoples.But overall the temple is dominated by the wealth of remains from Amenhotep II. There are two underground chambers with remnants of his monumental gateway and a museum with artifacts, statuary and relief's all with wonderful colour. For these 3 rooms alone the site would be worth visiting but with the added bonus of being a mortuary temple of a great Ramaside king the third in one family them it has much to offer the serious scholar.So three very different temples all with their own charmSeti I - a pious pharaoh with an eye for qualityRameses II- untouched by the restorers, invoking a David Roberts sceneMerenptah - ruined but compensated by Amenhotep III remnants.

Ancient Egypt Medicine

Often referred to the Greeks that they honor the discovery of the art of the modern pharmaceutical industry and the elixir that is the truth, that has now appeared, that the Greeks learned by the sons of the land of Ra (Egypt) and they, in turn, the development of this art. According to recent analyzes it turned out that 64% of the ancient Egyptian recipes contain the active substances was still used to the past fifty years. Some of them still used so far, with the active substance was natural to an artificial replacement.


Ancient Egypt Medicine

 Ancient Egypt Medicine

Researcher Jackie Campbell from the center of the competent medical biology of ancient Egyptians in England behind the figures are astonishing. We have analyzed the status of a thousand, were found on the pages of four papers Medical Papyrus, from the period between 1200-1850 BC. The researcher translated all the material included in the recipe and then the medical examination of the effect of this Article, a process that took five years. Image analysis has provided an amazing potential for pharmaceutical high land of the sons of Ra,. They were have extensive knowledge of the impact of plants and minerals, and the ability to determine the correct amounts in order to reach the required Mufaalah. 

Recipes developed by the sons of the land of Ra Doctors usually start a religious prayer, followed by a list of all content included in the recipe and ingredients and method of preparation.  Recipe shown protein standard (Stnadrd), where the first range of active substances followed by preservatives and then smells the possibility to hide the presence of odors and bad for the active ingredient, just the same way as pharmacists today.The sons of the land of Ra (the sons of ancient Egypt) were using the same technique that we use today in order to access materials from Algaalh Abannataat and minerals. They knew whether they have to draw juices by alcohol or milk, and they were using alcohol or sugar in order to save materials Alqaalh.  

 Just as in modern pharmacy was the Egyptians get their medication in the form of pills or powder or syrup, or injection, or a drop or survey or through the vagina or by Hacrha in bread.Treatment can be a single dose or at equal time intervals. It was news of the doctors are patient with him as does the doctor today. Ancient Egyptian recipes contain a lot of materials that have been demonstrated to be effective, but they also contain materials that the people of Ra Doctors think there are effective treatments to them. Of this material there and the dung of lizards, crocodiles, Aboakecth ethnic secretions from the ear of the pig and donkey hooves crushed milk of women and parents recently.

It may appear like magic or similar recipes swindlers, but the researcher Jackie Campbell found a few events reflect the intelligence in the use of insanity. Doctors described the Egyptian crocodile dung as a means to control fertility in women. Doctors have used the properties of an acid to kill the dung Almnuyat and prevent pregnancy due to sexual intercourse.Jackie Campbell also found a recipe where the patient is advised to sign up celery (coriander) against the aches. Initially were not Campbell know about the properties of the suit with celery recipe, but he recently was subject to the celery-depth research to find the reasons for their properties against rheumatism, which was discovered recently. It was Egyptian medicine knows these properties better than us today.However, the knowledge of medicinal plants and healing properties of minerals is not enough for the treatment of patients.

The processor needs a certain amount of knowledge of the human body and its functions and working methods, and here the old Pharaonic medicine proved on the progress of amazing, mostly thanks to the art of mummification. The dead and the ability Alychrih Balbsam surveyed gave an opportunity to study within a rich man. For this reason the Egyptians had all the nations to know Anatomia rights. One of the oldest news about the treatment Balbsam reached us from the tomb of Queen Hetephere, of the Fourth Dynasty, about 2600 years before Christ. I have been "pickling," guts Queen in four ceramic vessels and kept to its side in the grave.Guts were removed from within the body of a surgical procedure, an opportunity to study the localization of places internal organs to humans.

Lung, liver, stomach and intestine were Thanithm and put them all in its container sector. But they left their heart in place in the body, because it, according to Egyptian religion, place of residence the soul and mind and can not be extracted. On the contrary, we find that they wrested from the brain through the nostrils and the left and throw it in the rubbish bin, because they did not see where any value worthy of conservation .Thanks to the embalming enables the sons of the ancient land of Ra to identify the blood vessels as well, but they believe that the blood veins filled with air and not blood, which is a logic error because they did not see the blood veins until they were discharged from the blood.

Greek word arteria, a word that we release today on the mean blood veins Balagriqi air pipes, which means that the Greeks concluded the same erroneous conclusion. In fact, only in the eighteenth century man finally was able to demonstrate the existence of circulation.Doctors sons of the land of Ra were very interested in the path of Msear blood and concluded that all methods of blood with heart and end the anus, which is another logical conclusion, since all that remains of consuming the body out of there. This function was considered of vital importance, we find that most recipes designed to address diarrhea, stuffiness, and the rest of the problems of the abdomen.

Egyptians to know the structure and parts of the body we find mirrored in the language Heroglafah that contain words for members of the human body, such as the heart, brain, lung, spleen, liver, stomach and bladder. Many of evidence indicate that they have books to teach Anatomia rights.Possession of the land of the sons of Ra (Ancient Egyptians) for the written language at an early stage, their education helped them to transfer from one generation to another. Ancient medicine was handled through the ages, and newspapers Alababiros living proof of that. Unfortunately been lost a lot of newspapers, but we find that Clemen Alasendrani century, who lived in 200 after Christ said he Pharaonic There are 42 books, all related as human anatomy, and six of them were written to ensure medical information.

 Of sentiments, we find: Book No. 37: is a book about the structure of the body, Book No. 38: It is a book about the disease, Book No. 39: It is a book on medical instruments, Book No. 40: for treatment, the book No. 41: for the eye and eye diseases, the book No. 42: for women's diseases. These books have not arrived in full, but we arrived in parts of them.The most famous medical papyrus leaves are called Edwin Smith papyrus, Kahunpapyrus, and Garlsbergpapyrus. These papers are in various global institutions and provide us with a great image for the capacity of the land of the sons of Ra Medical. The Campbell today in cooperation with Egyptian scientists to redefine the medical old wild plants.

These plants are still used by the Bedouins today and there are many similarities between ancient Egyptian medicine and information Bedouins of Egypt today. For this reason, still hopes to help her to translate some of the recent expressions that are not available to translate, thus improving our image for the Egyptian Pharaonic medicine.If we look at the recipes Doctors sons of Ra, we find that they they have the means to address the many common diseases, such as infections, intestinal worms, and damage to the lung from the sands of the desert, and the pain of the stomach. Some material is repeated in many of the recipes, for example, honey, milk, wine and vinegar Hallenbiv dates.

Sons of Ra they have a wide choice of materials because of the richness and fertility of the Nile Basin and the good things which their livelihood by Re. Certainly used the material as quickly therapeutic capabilities, but most of the materials have had a real impact. Here is a review of some of the material used by the sons of Ra Medical Zellsafat her:


Cannabis: the receipt and the plant leaves are dried and smoked or Alkha or drink tea. Been described in detail as a treatment to relieve pain and even to the anesthesia.

Pomegranate: This fruit was widely used in all the famous ancient civilizations. Juice was used against the worm only. Recent research suggests that pomegranate juice is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, so it is a pomegranate fruit in the list of excellent protection from a range of diseases difficult.

Myrrh: bitter plant Commiphora myrrha, have resin used in making perfumes and ointments to smell good. Is also used as incense. Injury when inflammation of the gums around the teeth, the doctors advised Balamadamadma solution of a mixture of oil extracted from this plant.

Brigades: Aloe, a plant in Barre Bbaria live in the desert of North Africa. Used by the ancients in order to improve digestion. Even today this plant is used for the purposes of medical ointments. Juice of this plant is able to alleviate eczema and itching and can help to heal wounds and even burns.

Anise: Anise has a grain weevils Dam, and the ancient doctors had advised the patient to ease coughing. It was also used to change the smell of the mouth, cold and throat pain.

Dates: dates have a large amount of material Tannin, deadly bacteria and soothing of the gut. Egyptians used the dates against the calcification of blood vessels. In folk medicine try eating dates in cases of trauma and distress of the pharynx and Albroonki, and some believe that the dates can help in cases of alcohol poisoning.

Wheat: Wheat soaked can relieve pain in urinary tract infections when. Also use soaked to ease thirst in people with diabetes. Today we know that it has the effect of the control by sugar in the blood.

Poppy: Poppy cultivation was extensive and the Egyptians know this treatment plant for the opium of the mature grain store, so they were able to produce a powerful anesthetic substance. They also use the leaves of the plant and Ansagha in order to get the weakest material of opium called (meconium) mekonium, a treatment for cramps, insomnia and diarrhea.

malachite: green stone, was used as a treatment for inflammation of the eye disease. This article has the ability to kill bacteria and have been used in ointments to treat eye infections. This article was also involved in eye makeup to give it the color of green, and thus they provide protection to the eye from injuries.

Acacia: Acacia tree juices can manufacture a type of chewing gum, was used to relieve pain in the urinary tract. Today we know that the tree Acacia contain high levels of acid Algarve garvsyre, but does not have possession of what documents the effect of the tree for a medical.
