This review is from: The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt (Paperback)
I have been to Egypt, the first time was in 1993, and I made my mind up that I'd like to study Egyptology.
Although in my second year of studying Egyptology, during my first year this was one of my study books I was required to read.
This provides you with a lot of information on different periods of the Ancient Egyptian History, in all it covers 700,000 years.
I found this book informative, interesting and enjoyable to read. Sometimes I had to read a chapter twice for all the information to sink in.
Whether you are studying Egyptology or just want a little more knowledge this is an excellent book.
It makes an excellent edition to my little Egyptian library, which now stands at nearly 1000 books on this subject. :-)
