Quite often a layman wants to find authoritative answers to specific questions about the ancient world. The book manages to give these and yet retain the quality of a detective novel. It would be very good if Thames and Hudson could countinue their "Seventy Greatest...." series.

This volume of the Thames & Hudson series of 70 Great(s) is quite simply magnificent for the beginner into Egyptology and also superb for those studying any aspect of the subject and need an instant reference for confirmation or otherwise of aspects being considered at the time. A Fine Book.

This is one of those books it's nice to dip into, and read a chapter here and a chapter there in a completely random order. It's a nicely presented coffee-table type book. Lots of good quality pictures. The chapters are quite short - 3 - 5 pages for each mystery. But they're well written and quite scholarly. Do they actually solve any of the mysteries ? Well, what do you think?

Bill Manley's book is up to date and shows how much more information is needed about ancient Egypt. He emphasises that caution must be exercised in the use of some dates and places. He also shows how much archeological activity is taking place currently.

For a "used" book it is in remarkably good condition. The price charged and the prompt delivery also contributed to the high rating
