“In conclusion, the uninitiated will have a tough read with this ‘quick’ access to Egyptology, and Egyptologists will have difficulty critically evaluating the various proposed developments. Therefore, it seems this book should serve as a very brief insight into certain themes for already initiated experts, and for that, it provides excellent points of departure indeed.” (Bibliotheca Orientalis, 1 September 2014)
“Willeke Wendrich’s edited volume, Egyptian archaeology, is perhaps the most ambitious of the three on offer here in terms of its scope and I would strongly recommend it.” (Antiquity, 1 January 2013)"Recommended. All academic levels/libraries." (Choice , 1 April 2011)

From the Back Cover
By examining fundamental issues and important temporal, regional, and social developments through a global lens, Egyptian Archaeology brings existing debates vigorously up-to-date, while challenging students to think about their own interpretations, expectations, and attitudes towards ancient and modern Egypt. Engaging and progressive, this fully illustrated volume provides an insightful investigation into the world of ancient Egyptian archaeology and culture.
