The Database reflects one aspect of the work being done by the KNH Center for Biomedical Egyptology at the University of Manchester. The Center studies living conditions, health and disease in ancient Egypt. An international Egyptian mummy tissue bank was established at the KNH Center in 1996. The database, accessible through this website, reflects materials stored in the tissue bank and can be used by researchers studying all aspects of health and disease in ancient Egypt. Menu driven selections make searching and reporting easy for Egyptologists and others around the world.
