A handy and colourful illustrated guide to reading, writing and understanding ancient Egyptian names, epithets, titles and phrases. The Egyptians believed that the creator god Ptah brought the world into being by naming everything in it. Names had great power, and kings often over-wrote their own names on the monuments of earlier rulers. A persons name was a vitally important part of them, and the Egyptians were very concerned that their names should be recorded, remembered and spoken. Criminals and those who had fallen out of favour could be punished - wiped out of history - by having their names destroyed or defaced. The hieroglyphic script provided a beautiful, flexible and expressive means to write the names of humans, gods and animals. Angela McDonald explains the meanings of Egyptian personal names and how they were made up (Rameses = Ra has given birth to him) and demonstrates how they were written in different ways to convey various shades of meaning. Royal and divine names are always given special treatment. The Egyptians were not always formal, and nicknames were common. Even the names of pet animals are recorded in tomb paintings.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Women have contributed to science from its earliest days, but as contributors they have generally not been acknowledged. Historians with an interest in gender and science have illuminated the contributions women have made, the barriers they have faced, and the strategies implemented to have their work accepted. The involvement of women in the field of medicine has been recorded in several early civilizations. An Egyptian, Merit Ptah (2700 BC), described in an inscription as "chief physician", is the earliest woman named in the history of science. Agamede was cited by Homer as a healer in Greece before the Trojan War. Agnodike was the first female physician to practice legally in 4th century BC Athens.
The main temple worshiped the god Amun, but, as in other temples of Egypt, is also worshiped other gods. The complex of temples of Karnak is composed of: the great temple of Amun, Montu enclosure and Mut, and Khonsu temples, Opet and Ptah. Within the walls around the main areas, there were several shrines and smaller temples, and many stores and farms. The main difference between the Temple of Amun at Karnak and most of the rest of the temples of Egypt is the effort and time spent on its construction and subsequent expansion. Approximately 30pharaohs contributed to its construction, transforming it into a complex which, by their large amplitude, had no precedent.
