Flying High: Why the Egyptians Loved Flies
Flies can carry diseases, suck our blood and are generally really annoying. But the ancient Egyptians seemed to love them! They wore pendants in the forms of flies, had drawings of them in their tombs and even used them in medicines. Taneash Sidpura, PhD student at the University of Manchester, will discuss the possible reasons behind this.
