About the Author
Steven Snape is Senior Lecturer in Egyptian Archaeology at the University of Liverpool, Director of Archaeological Collections in Liverpool University’s Garstang Museum of Archaeology, and Director of its excavations at the Ramesside fortress–town of Zawiyet Umm el–Rakham. His books include Six Archaeological Sites in Sharqiyeh Province (1986), A Temple of Domitian at El–Ashmunein (1990), Egyptian Temples (1996), and Zawiyet Umm el–Rakham I: The Temple and Chapels (with P. Wilson, 2007).
"This work is a rather ambitious attempt to summarize not only the development of the burial place in ancient Egypt and its architecture, but also the complex religious significance of the tomb, the attendant rituals and ritual objects as well as funerary texts. Admittedly, there is a great deal to be said about each of these aspects of the burial rite in ancient Egypt and the author has essayed a survey that includes a good deal of significant information as well as observation." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 12 November 2011)
