Concise Introduction Ancient Egypt


Members' price *

  • The first in a new series, this book presents a general view of Ancient Egyptian life and culture set in the specific geography of the land and its river, the Nile, within the historical framework of the dynastic sequence. It provides an entertaining survey of Ancient Egypt and its rich and well-documented culture. The principal topics incorporate significant older as well as more recent scholarship, supported by substantial bibliographies and spiced with some ideas based on the author's long experience in the study of Ancient Egypt. The intention is not to be controversial, yet not to be bland - but to be stimulating and thought-provoking. In addition to the individual chapter bibliographies, there is a substantial general bibliography, an annotated list of important museum collections, a king-list with a selective set of illustrated royal cartouches, and a general index.
