Now, this is an exceptional collation of more less everything known (so far) of Tausret and the end of the 19th Dynasty. Full of interesting and absorbing detail on a period of Ancient Egyptian history of which so little (comparitively speaking to say the Amarna period) is known. It really wets the appitite for more research and literature. I could be cheeky here and say that if this book is read in conjunction with Aiden Dodson's Poisoned Legacy we have a really good overview with the facts thus far and so the end of the 19th dynasty begins to become as tantilising, as curious and every bit as interesting as anything to do with Amarna. I would guess that as more information surfaces we will find that Tausret will become just as important as Hatshepsut and Cleopatra VII as oneof the great Queens of Egypt.
I read this book in more or less one hit and couldn't really put it down. Richard Wilkinson has a very concise, to the point and easy writing style and this book can only be highly recommended.
So come on all you budding Egyptologists out there ..........we need more flesh on the bones of this fascinating period.

Loads of new information revealing a much more complex story about the woman herself, her reign and her temple. I certainly learnt a lot from reading this.
