4.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Story of Temples, July 26, 2001
This review is from: The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt (Hardcover)
No other volume manages so comprehensive a detailing of the temples of ancient Egypt--their history, lore and design. There are color and black and white photos, maps and floor plans, but most importantly, the text documents the historical development and significance of each site it references.
The concise narrative covers the entire system of temple monuments, such as the Temples at Karnak, Luxor, Dendera, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Giza and Abu Simbel. But, this is no tourist guide to temple sites. The casual reader may find the detailed discussion of such subjects as building materials and construction methodologies a bit dry. This is a must-have for the student of Egyptology and the religion and art of the ancient world.
