abstract

  • In 1991 mummies from Leipzig collections were investigated by means of conventional X-ray techniques and by computer tomography. The dental state of one of these mummies prompted a re-examination of the question of whether a dental profession actually existed in Ancient Egypt or not. To answer this question, different types of source material are discussed.
