Description

This series looks at the medical contributions and advances made over the centuries, from prehistoric times to the present day. Each book evaluates the major medical issues of the time and the key individuals who pushed medical knowledge into new territory. In this title, readers can discover how hunter-gathering peoples treated everyday illnesses and broken bones, what the skeletons of early people can tell us about the diseases they suffered from, the influence of medicine men in Native American and Aboriginal societies, Ancient Egyptian beliefs about illness and the human body, and the effectiveness of their herbal remedies.
