I am a student and i am presenting a workshop on dream therapy, i want to start it with the history of dreams, so the egyptians and dreams is a good starting place, along with the greeks etc.... Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you Cool

HI there Smile

I found an article online about dream interpretations in ancient egypt:
http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/dream.htm

Apparently they have found a dream book:
Quote:
The library of Scribe Kenhirkhopeshef also contained a Dream Book papyrus. This Dream Book was written long before Kenhirkhopeshef’s time – even then the text was considered ancient – but the content remained relevant.
The Dream Book contains approximately 108 ancient dreams, within which it describes about 78 activities and emotions.


There is the famous dream stela of Tuthmosis IV:
He claims that the god Hamarkis appeared to him in a dream and told him that if he cleared the sand from the Spinx he would become pharaoh.

The papyrus of Qenherkepshef is at the British museum. They have an overview of it on the web: Click Here to see the British museum page
You can see the actual papyrus as well as some other objects that belonged to this scribe who lived in the workers village of Deir en Medina.
