Requests for information 2008

7 May 2008: Egyptian oil lamps

I'm doing my research on a botanical plant called Nigella sativa (black seed or black cumin). The black seed was found in king Tut's tomb. Many books also state that Cleopatra used it for beauty. But, all the books I have read do not go into detail about how she used it and when. The books also do not state the sources of this information. My research mainly focuses on Cleopatra and Nefirtiti and the use of the black seed. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. Thanks very much in advance

7 May 2008: Plagues

I am a fairly new student of Egyptology. I have just been researching plagues within Ancient Egypt and have been trying to utilize any and all resources I can find. Any help would be appreciated.
