Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book will be of particular interest to students and scholars of social anthropology, although chapters focussing on Deir el Medineh will interest Egyptologists as well." Religious Studies Review

"[T]his study is a welcome addition to archeological research which employs various theories in order to present more data from an ancient, long-gone past." Journal of the Economic and Social History of the Orient

From the Back Cover


Archaeologies of Social Life is a fascinating new perspective on everyday life in ancient Egypt. The author provides detailed discussions of new topics of debate, including the body, sexuality and issues of identity, while also addressing some of the traditional questions in archaeology about society and self, the individual and social relations.

The book is unusual in examining ordinary life in ancient Egypt rather that focusing on the traditional subjects of pharaohs and elites. Meskell makes Egyptian social history available to an archaeological audience and shows the reader how factors such as age, class, sex and ethnicity were played out in the lives of real people.

The author takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, combining theories of third wave feminism with the archaeological data of New Kingdom Egypt. She presents innovative theory from the social sciences and puts it into practice to reveal individuals in antiquity, relating the issues of their lives to our experience of society today.

Format: Paperback
Everyday life in Ancient Egypt is as important to study as the great events. This book explains what part age, class, sex and ethnicity played in the lives of individuals. The author presents innovative theories about the complex society of Ancient Egypt. It brings the feeling that this fascinating civilization still has very many interesting stories to tell. An excellent book for serious students and scholars.
