5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading: Excellent Introduction to Predynastic Egyptian History 27 Oct. 2011
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well written and easy to read with numerous pictures and drawings by the author himself, Archaic Egypt is an excellent resource for Predynastic Egyptian history with many facts and insights unique to this work. Walter B. Emery, who passed away in 1971, was a leading Egyptologist for almost 50yrs and one of the principle excavators of the Archaic Necropolis at Sakkara. Though written in the 1950's, this is a good thing as Emery is unencumbered by the institutional dogma that plagues modern Egyptology today and as a result this book is one of the few unbiased sources regarding the clear Mesopotamian influence on Archaic Egyptian culture. Emery offers little in the way of theory, and as any good archeologist should, often lets what was found in the ground speak for itself. While it is tempting to ignore older works, this is the perfect example of specifically why not to. Highly recommended.
