Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An interesting book about an important city in Egypt's history up until 1315 when it ceased to be shown in the records. This book got down to 10 foot level into the lives of ordinary Memphis residents and up to the emperors, Gods and even key Bulls. I cannot say this is a must read as a scientific or bland view of the life of a Royal Bull does not make for interesting reading. Because the climate allows for the safekeeping of the written word, thousands of files have been found, graffiti saved and inscriptions kept. This book went over the importance to Memphis in the old days of the Pharaohs, when the Greeks and Macedonians took over from the Persians, and finished with the Romans and the Arabs. Memphis appeared to well run and then when the Romans took over exploded with financial success before imploding with the bureaucratization of the Temple, the removal of the troops and then after the Edict of Milan, the change of official religions. I am glad I read it, but I would not buy it new at 80.00.00. Unlike the other reviewer, the binding on my book was fine, the photos fine and the notes are in-depth. Just more academic and dry than I was expecting. I did learn more about the older religions, the temples and more, so it filled a hole in my Egyptian studies.
