This review is from: The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt (Hardcover)
A must have for those who want to make themselves a clear idea about the dynamics, the philosphy, the ideas that stand behind the construction of the temples during the ancient Egypt times.

This review is from: The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt (Hardcover)
Generally, the problem with Egyptology for the starter is that there is little about the Temples that you can visit. There is a great deal about the pyramids, Valley of the Kings and Philae, but little about the purpose and reason for their existence.

Here in one boomis all the known temples, there origins and development.One of the key points about any Egyptian temple: tye were livinbg organisms, forever changing and deverlping, yet the same.

They all have the same items, and usually in the samer place. Here you will find out why tere is a Birth Room, but no one was ever born in the Temple. Where the last hieorglyohic inscription was made.

Well worth the buy, get it if your going to Egypt and want to know more about what you are seeing then is easily found in the average guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book for your Egyption collection!, 11 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt (Hardcover)
This book follows the excellent previous titles in the series, well laid out and easy to read. A most valuable reference tool that fills the gap in the market. It gives an excellent insight into the progression of Egyptian buildings over the ceturies. References to interesting facts of the alinments of the temples and how they have changed with the specific movement of steller bodies such as Sirius and the Sun. As I said earlier a must have book, well worth twice the selling price. Richie Wells

This book is just great. Beautifully illustrated and everything in it is well documented and explained . Also easy to navigate and find a particular item. Would highly recommend it not just for academic reasons, but also for people who are interested in ancient Egypt generally and temples in particular.

This review is from: The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt (Hardcover)
A very informative guide, gives good descriptions for some of the lesser known temples. I am hoping to use this when I return in the spring to chose alternative sites to the main ones at Karnak and Luxor
