Product Description

Review

"A detailed and impressive volume ... Very readable and well illustrated, this book contains much information that will not be found elsewhere." Ancient Egypt Magazine "This book will be ideal for enthusiasts, especially for students and more so for anyone who teaches the subject at any level. As such it is likely to be well used and is highly recommended." Ancient Egypt: The History, People and Culture of the Nile Valley "There has never been a scholarly introduction to the archaeology of ancient Egypt that also works as a course text. Kathryn Bard′s new book fills that gap. I am particularly impressed by its even coverage of all historical periods and types of evidence." John Baines, University of Oxford "Kathryn Bard has authored the first history of ancient Egypt based primarily on archaeological data. She is well qualified to do this as a result of her major contributions as an archaeologist to understanding the development of the state in prehistoric Egypt and of Egyptian trading relations with sub–Saharan Africa, as well as her editing of the highly successful Encyclopedia of the Archaeology of Ancient Egypt. This is a broadly accessible work." Bruce G. Trigger, McGill University

4.0 out of 5 stars Very comprehensive, clear book 3 Jun 2011
By Miss S
Format:Paperback
As someone who is developing an interest in the subject, I bought this book as a starting point to give me some more information about Ancient Egypt; the history, archaeological findings, culture, art etc, and it does not disappoint. It is clearly set out, with each chapter beginning a new period of time in Egypt's history. There are photos and drawings of archaeological findings, as well as descriptions. I highly recommend this book to everyone- whether you are looking in to Egyptology as a hobby, or are looking to pursue it as a career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good basic stuff 27 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Clearly lecture notes compiled into a book, but good, sound basic information nevertheless. Easy to read. Some of the maps could have more detail in them. A good buy.
