Here's a taster:

Egyptian society
The Egyptian Empire was
very wealthy because of
its fertile soil, and had
strong rulers who took
over other lands. They
built large cities and
traded with distant
countries such as China.
The wealthier people were educated, and could afford
doctors to treat their illnesses. They believed in cleanliness
and followed a structured religion which dictated that they
needed their bodies in an afterlife.
What would you expect the state of medicine and
health to be in Ancient Egypt?
