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.

Reviewed by Francesca: Historians have shown that fish has always played a great part in Egyptian life. This book explores in detail the importance of fish, its economic, artistic and religious significance as well as fishing tools, methods and techniques. It also describes and illustrated 20 types of fish known to the Ancient Egyptians. This is an excellent book for archeologists to identify fish bones.

From the publisher's website: Les milliers de chevaux figurés sur les murs des temples et des tombes conservent les plus anciennes images du cheval à l'époque historique. La fidélité des dessinateurs égyptiens, de 1600 à 1300 avant J.C., a permis à l'égyptologue Catherine Rommelaere, elle-même excellente écuyère, d'étudier l'origine, les races et le harnachement de ces beaux animaux, dans leur état ancien, avant les transformations dues à l'élevage moderne.

From Discussions in Egyptology: The author has produced an admirable and carefully crafted book, whose terms of reference are far broader than the title indicates. It will undoubtedly stimulate the interest of Egyptologists and laypeople alike.

From the book cover: Mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians - animals of all kinds were important to the ancient Egyptians in their work, leisure and religious practices. In this book, the author examines aspects of the relationship between people and animals in ancient Egypt, and identifies the animals most commonly represented in art and hieroglyphs. Surveying more than three thousand years of Egyptian history, the author draws not only on the extremely rich pictorial record, but also on the evidence from textual references, mummified animals, food offerings placed in burials and bone remains recovered from settlement sites.
