From Brian Fagan's review in The South African Archaeological Bulletin (1982) 37:83: This is a fascinating well-edited and lavishly illustrated vignette of archaeological research on the Nile. Primarily aimed at specialists, it should nevertheless appeal to anyone seriously interested in Ancient Egypt.

Reviewed by Francesca: The Ancient Egyptians felt close to their pets : some were given names. Dogs and cows, cats and monkeys were all cherished by their owners. Horses were status symbols. Exotic animals were regarded with awe. This book explains the importance of animals in the daily lives of the Egyptian peasants and among the royal court. A well documented, recommended book for all.

Categories :  Egyptian Technology  
From the book cover: Drawing on archaeological and literary evidence, [the author] examines the importance of the boat in Egyptian ritual and belief as well as in everyday life. The sun god was thought to travel across the sky in a solar boat and Egyptians believed that the deserving might join the god Osiris in his divine bark after death. Boats played an important part in funerary ritual; models were often placed in tombs to provide the deceased with safe passage through the Winding Waterway in the underworld. Also, boats are frequently depicted in tomb-painting. The Nile has always been a vital transport artery for Egypt, and boats the principal means of travel. [...] Dilwyn Jones traces the development of the different types of boat and the techniques of their construction through the Old, Middle and New Kingdom periods.

Reviewed by Francesca: From the introduction to the last page, this catalog is the witness of this period, qualified as ’purely Egyptian in style.’ The last paragraph of the introduction says a great deal about this most interesting catalog; the author suggests that scholars should show more interest in this particular period. When reading through this catalog, the reader will wish indeed that scholars show this interest. Through the well-documented pages appears a rich era. All inscriptions are well explained and all statues described with much detail. Wonderful photographs complete this recommended book.
