From the foreword: In this document, therefore, we have disclosed to us for the first time the human mind peering into the mysteries of the human body, and recognizing conditions and processes there as due to intelligible physical causes. The facts in each given case of injury are observed, listed, and marshaled before the mind of the observer, who then makes rational conclusions base don the observed facts. Here then we find the first scientific observer known to us, and in this papyrus we have the earliest known scientific document. While the copy of the document which has come down to us dates from the Seventeenth Century B.C., the original author's first manuscript was produced at least a thousand years earlier, and was written some time in the Pyramid Age (about 3000 to 2500 B.C.).
