The Ten Plagues of Egypt

Aims

To show how:

  • modern investigational methods can explain epidemics that occurred in the past
  • science can provide rational explanations of biblical and historical mysteries
  • apparently unrelated events may form part of a pattern
  • a multidisciplinary approach is valuable when tackling complex problems
  • modern-day events can provide evidence for historical events
