Hunt for ancient medicine secrets

British scientists are helping uncover the secrets of medicines used by the ancient Egyptians 5,000 years ago.

A University of Manchester team is travelling to Sinai, Egypt, to shed more light on how the Egyptians formed their ideas on medicines.

They will compare modern plant species in the region with those used by tribes, such as the Bedouin, and plant remains found in ancient tombs.
