Description

Dictionary of Medical Archaeology is a long felt desiredatum. As far back 1914 Jurgen Thorwald wrote a book wherein he laid his emphasis in comprehending the medical lore with the help of archaeology. The present book Dictionary of Medical Archaeology in a sense is a continuation of the past research and implicit updating the subject in a different angle. Without laying any claim to its absolute completeness, Prof Krishna Murthy with his erudite scholarship and long standing experience as an archaeologist has brought out this splendid volume divulging deep insight into the archaeological discoveries for visualising the medical history.

For this, ancient civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greek, India, Mexico, China and Peru have been brought within the compass of his study. The project is exhaustive, ambitious and vast. Such a wider range or such an ambitious scale has been attempted for the first time by a distinguished archaeologist. The chapter on medical terms lends immense utilitarian and academic value to the book. Dr Murthy with his immaculate scholarship and indefatigable research, explicitly unfolded how archaeology and medicine go hand in hand, complementing and supplementing each other.

This book indubitably remains a stand work for all time to come. No student of archaeology, history, or medicine can afford to miss this authoritative scientific book. The general readers may find this book as a kernal to their knowledge.
