Editorial Reviews


In 11 lucidily written fact-filled chapters the author surveys the history and achievement of Egyptology...A useful addition to all college and university libraries.

There is no end to the writing of popular books on Egypt. Most are, however, lavishly illustrated coffee-table books or superficial summaries of Egyptian history and culture. Few seriously attempt to introduce their readers to the discipline of Eqyptology itself. David's book is a significant exception. David(Univ. of Manchester) is author of an excellent study of the royal workmen's village Kahun, The Pyramid Builders of Ancient Egypt(1986). The first five chapters summarize the results of current scholarship on ancient Egyptian history, religion, and daily life, and survey the sources used by Egyptologists. THe next five chapters provide a concise chronicle of the development of Egyptology from the Renaissance to the present. The work concludes with an analysis of the contribution made by the scientist analysis of mummies to the study of the lives of the ancient Egyptians themselves..

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Francesca Jourdan on May 4, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This book is a perfect introduction to Ancient Egypt, for it discusses the current knowledge of its religion, language, death, life and literature, in many informative details. The author clearly explains for the general reader, the beginnings of Egyptology, from the decipherment of hieroglyphs to the latest archaeological methods used. She also demonstrates the importance to study classical texts in this field. Highly recommended for both beginners and scholars.
