In this group project from Dr. Deirdre Dempsey’s Fall Digging the Bible class (THEO 4000) visitors to the site travel across a modern map of what is known as the Ancient Near East, with each slide moving to a new location related to its content. Ranging from “Female Physicians in Egypt,” for example, to an image and summary of the Edwin Smith Papyrus, the students intermix general information on medicine of the period with slides identifying specific archaeological artifacts.
