Ancient Egyptians may have used branding irons on human slaves

Small branding irons from ancient Egypt were likely used to mark the skin of human slaves, a new study suggests. 

Several ancient texts and illustrations, as well as 10 branding irons dating to 3,000 years ago, suggest that ancient Egyptians branded slaves. These branding irons, actually made of bronze, are now in the collections of the British Museum and the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology at University College London.
