Hair-offerings: an enigmatic Egyptian custom

Author:

G. J. Tassie

Abstract

The Egyptians did not record the reasons that lay behind the offering of hair. Using an holistic approach, which combines both ethnographic and ethnohistoric evidence, insights may be gained into the ancient remains of these rituals and practices.
