Dr. Julia Troche, instructor in the history department at Missouri State University and co-curator for an interactive exhibit at Brown University that focuses on ancient Egyptian artifacts, studies the resourcefulness of the ancient Egyptians.
“What interests me the most about Egyptian technology is not that they used extravagant tools, but how much they could do with really simple things,” said Troche. “They really harnessed the power of everything they had around them. They used the sun, general observation and really simple tools to do extraordinary things.”
