Editorial Reviews

Review

"... an interesting read for anyone studying ancient Egypt; as Brewer concludes, only cooperative research and a greater understanding between archaeologists, Egyptologists, geologists, biologists and art historians can give a truly comprehensive understanding of the complexity of the human experience throughout history."
Ancient Egypt

"This is an important and intriguing contribution to the study of past societies in the Nile Valley and Delta, written from an anthropological/archaeological perspective rather than from a more traditional egyptological/culture-historical one."
Journal of African Archaeology

Book Description

Egyptologists, philologists, and archaeologists have long worked side by side in Egypt, but they often fail to understand one another's approaches. This book aims to introduce students to the archaeological side of the study of ancient Egypt and to bridge the gap between disciplines by explaining how archaeologists tackle a variety of problems.

One of the best publications that I have read on the subject.
Because of many included up-to-date bits of information and easy to read chapters, the whole experience was a good one.

A text that explains how anthropolgical archaeologists do archaeology in Egypt written for both lay-persons and Egyptologists. An excellent overview.
