Egypt - 477 words
Historians divide Egyptian history into thirty one dynasties, regrouped into four periods of political centralization: pre- and early dynastic Egypt (3150-2770 BC), the Old Kingdom (2270-2200 BC), the Middle Kingdom (2050-1786 BC), and the New Kingdom (1560-1087 BC).

There are no current medical reports that outline the symptoms or diagnosis of an ancient Egyptian's stomachache and no ancient Egyptian has shown up to any contemporary clinics for blood tests. The only way, therefore, for modern scientists and anthropologists to examine the cause, result, and other factors of ancient Egyptians' diseases is to study the preserved mummies. Through CAT scans, DNA tests and other high tech methods, the life, sickness, and death of the ancients has become, in many cases, startling clear.
