Hello! My name is CB, I am from the Art Drawer. You have a follower called Celina and she is one of my friends. That is how I heard of your blog. Beautiful work! I am rather obsessed with ancient Egypt, so I appreciate the reference. Yes, they have found evidence that a man name Imhotep (architect, vizier to king Jhoser, and doctor) actually conducted the first known brain surgery. The evidence was a skull of a mummy with a manmade incision in it. I suppose they did a carbon dating on the skull around it and the skull that began to heal..? I am not sure, but I really appreciate the thought!! Thank you!!
