Major problems here[edit]

The two references link to the same URL. Someone goofed.

The link states that the Brooklyn Museum has over 300 papyri. I would have thought it necessary to identity the "Brooklyn Papyrus" by some kind of number to distinguish it from all the others. The length and condition of the papyrus should also be stated, with an estimate of the number of recipes and procedures. A link to a copy of the papyrus online would be nice (if it exists), or the ISBN of a book which contains the papyrus and a translation. (I am not an Egyptologist, so I can't help here.)

Indeed, nothing in the one source suggests there is such a thing as the Brooklyn papyrus. But there are books that talk about it, so if someone gets ambitious they can fix. Dicklyon (talk) 04:50, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
