An ancient Egyptian remedy for eye infections was made of onions, copper, acid, and sawdust. A 2,000-year-old Indian text details experiments in plastic surgery. Filled with fascinating facts like these, this book explores the medical practices found in cultures from prehistoric times through the fall of the Roman Empire in 476 CE. Photographs of relevant artifacts, text boxes, and “Common Confusions” and other sidebars contribute to a dynamic design. Challenging words are bolded and defined in “Word Station” lines at the bottom of the accompanying page and/or in a glossary at the end of the book. Back matter also includes a time line, suggestions for further reading, a list of relevant Web sites and places to visit, ideas for additional research, and an index.
