The conference

Welcome to the Third International Conference on Pharmacy and Medicine in Ancient Egypt to be held in Barcelona on October 25th and 26th 2018.

Following our first conference in Cairo (Egypt) in 2007 and a second one in Manchester (UK) in 2008, the next conference was going to be held in Aswan in 2012, but did not materialize.

We are highly honoured to organize this new conference that will include presentations on new research and advances in the topics covered in the first two conferences.

This meeting will display the most recent pharmaceutical and medical studies on human remains and organic and plant material from ancient Egypt, together with discussions on textual and iconographical evidence related to this subject in order to evaluate the knowledge and advances we have made on the pharmacy, veterinary and human medicine in Ancient Egypt.

The Conference program combines plenary sessions, oral communications and posters, and discussions which will permit to establish interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers and research groups that propose breakthrough studies on Pharmacy, Vet and Medicine in Ancient Egypt.
