The richness of more than 3000 years of Egyptian civilization comes alive in the pages of this book. From the geology of the land, the first cities, social structure, religion, mummification and burial practices, languages, temple and house architecture and art, Egypt and the Egyptians is a comprehensive treatment of ancient Egypt. The illustrations, many appearing here for the first time, and extensive quotes from ancient letters, hymns, funerary texts and law codes, enliven the text. The result is a rare combination of up-to-date Egyptological and anthropological research, giving the reader the most current and expansive examination of Egypt. It is written for students, and for the general reader interested in this ancient land and its people. The extensive bibliography, suggestions for further reading, and glossary, make this book an excellent resource for exploring any aspect of ancient Egypt.
