Join Dr. Wendy Slusser as she travels back in time with UCLA Archaeology doctoral student Amr Shahat to discover what ancient Egyptians ate and learn about how the scientific analysis of food remnants can tell us the stories of how ancient Egyptians lived. Amr explains how racism and gender inequality intersect with archaeology and how by studying what is left in the stomach of mummies over the centuries can tell us how much fiber we should eat.
