I required this publication for Egyptology study and would recommend it for anyone who is interested in this subject as it covers a particularly interesting and complex period in ancient Egyptian history.

I have been to Egypt, the first time was in 1993, and I made my mind up that I'd like to study Egyptology.

Now in my second year of studying Egyptology, one of the periods I studying this year also involve the Hyksos who the Egyptians classed as atheist barbarians. Although it wasn't one of the study books I had to read I decided to purchase it. This provides an excellent overview of a period. I found this book informative, interesting and enjoyable to read.

Whether you are studying Egyptology or just want a little more knowledge then Shire Publications are all great books. Have a look at the rest of my reviews, you'll find number of Shire books mentioned.

It makes an excellent edition to my little Egyptian library, which now stands at nearly 1000 books on this subject. :-)

This book is probably now out of date due to new discoveries.

The capital city of the Hyksos was called Avaris and late June 2010 the BBC World Srvice announced the discovery of the remains of the city of Avaris.

HASH(0x8b4772c4) out of 5 stars A Superficial Pamphlet 20 Dec. 2009
By Al Sundel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Outside of some photos of plain-vanilla museum pieces,
this thin pamphlet can tell us nothing about the Hyksos period
in Canaan or Egypt. It is foggy. It has no sense of history or
human events at all. A D- school paper.

HASH(0x8bdac6cc) out of 5 stars Hyksos-Egypt's dark Age 22 Sept. 2007
By Glen V. Mcintyre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Shire Egyptology books has put out a series of books on many aspects of Ancient Egypt. This book,THE HYKSOS PERIOD IN EGYPT is a very useful book for an amateur Egyptologist as there are very few books on this period of time. It is short, concise and full of beautiful illustrations. It is definitely on the must have list for those who love Egypt.
