Reviewed by Francesca: This book is an introduction about Nubia, the region where Abu Simbel is located. The author describes and discusses the High Dam and the Unesco campaign to save the temples; he provides details concerning the Sound And Light project. He then provides a brief summary of Ramses II's life and family. Various sections of Nubian temples are briefly described. Hawass also discusses the architecture of two beautiful rock-cut temples, and examines scenes covering walls. Maps, plans, illustrations and color photographs complete this useful and enjoyable guide, recommended for everyone.

From the book cover: This study reveals a highly diversified and unique pattern of habitation in the Nile Valley. The main focus of this work is the New Kingdom which offers the largest number of sites from any one period. Previously, most studies of Egyptian urbanism have focused exclusively on the site of Tell el-Armana which has become the paradigm for ancient Egyptian settlements. Critical to our understanding of Egyptian urbanism is the question of just how representative of pharaonic town planning Amarna truly is. To resolve this problem, this study contrasts Amarna with what available data exists from other sites. One important source for such a comparison is the Second Intermediate Period site of Deir el-Ballas. This "incipient" Amarna may well have served as the prototype for the revised urbanism of the New Kingdom. This study also reviews the data from other New Kingdom settlements on a "micro-spatial" level, dealing with both the forms of individual structures as well as the overall community layout. Comparisons between the overall plans of the various settlements and the various elements which comprise them reveal a "mental temple" of urban structure that existed in ancient Egypt.

Reviewed by Francesca: This wonderful book presents the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, the Tombs of the Nobles and the village of Deir Al Medina. The author discusses mortuary rituals and presents many pharaohs, including those buried in the Valley of the Kings (Ramesses IX, Tuthmosis, Ramesses III, Ramesses I, Sethos I, Ramesses VI, Amenophis II, and Tuthomosis III), the queens buried in the Valley of the Queens (Nefertari, Khaemwaset, Amun-her-Khepshef) and the nobles from tombs TT 52, TT 69, TT 55, TT 96, TT 1 and TT 359. With maps, drawings, a bibliography, a chronological table and more than 150 photographs, this is an extremely worthwhile guide for travelers.
