    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    In recent years, the histories of ancient science as well as historical epistemology have become hot topics in interdisciplinary research. This volume is a collection of essays on ancient Egyptian science and its agents, who were “scientists” before the term was invented. Many of the contributions focus on mathematics, but medicine, astrology, botany, engineering, and chemistry are also discussed.
