The female pharaoh

Categories :  Pharaohs & Queens  
Reviewed by Francesca: Hatchepsut... a name erased from monuments despite her importance to Egyptian history. As this book explains through archaeological and historical evidence, she was a remarkable pharaoh (and queen !) having done much for the country. Her expeditions and her relations with the numerous Thoutmosis are discussed in detail. A chapter is dedicated to Senenmut, an important figure in Hatchepsut's reign. Maps, black-and-white illustrations and photographs complete this useful book. Recommended for the interested reader.
In Search of the Woman Pharaoh Hatshepsut
Herbert Eustis Winlock
ISBN 071030708X

Order
Categories :  Pharaohs & Queens  
From Amazon.com: This compelling book by a former Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York tells of his excavations over the course of twenty years at Deir el-Bahri, the site with which the woman Pharaoh Hatshepsut is most closely identified. Winlock conjures up a procession of vanished figures from Hatshepsut's court, Winlock also details the conditions and emotions surrounding archaeological fieldwork -- the surges of optimism and despair, the exhilaration of an unexpected find.

Treasures of Egyptian Art from the Louvre

From AEB: The Egyptian galleries at the Louvre are perhaps the best-known in the world, containing some of the most precious works of art ever found among the ruins of the ancient kingdoms that once rose along the Nile. This year, with the renovation of the Egyptian wing of the Louvre, Americans will have the rare opportunity to view thirty of these treasures firsthand : works that have never traveled since their initial acquisition by the Louvre are being gathered for an unprecedented exhibition that opens at the Cleveland Museum of Art in February 1996. This beautifully illustrated catalogue offers a complete record of the exhibition, and provides a veritable feast for all Egyptologists and other avid fans of Ancient Egypt. [This book] features all thirty of these masterpieces of Egyptian art, and includes images of rulers from all the major periods of Egyptian history, as seen in the statues, reliefs, and stelae (largely done in stone) of the original collection. [...]
[This book] is a lavish collection of treasures for art lovers and antiquities students alike. The wealth of archaeological information combined with the sheer beauty of the pieces themselves result in a lush and richly detailed presentation that is not only an essential companion for anyone planning to attend the exhibit, but an invaluable addition to the library of every lover of art, archaeology, and Egyptology.

Categories :  Pharaohs & Queens   Women, Family & Sexuality  
From KMT:The staggering amount of material that had to be assembled and collated for Families, not to mention the actual writing itself, leaves this reviewer in awe of the accomplishment. . . . A book to own, read cover to cover, and pull from the shelf again and again.
book coverThe Mysteries of Abu Simbel

Categories :  Monuments, Temples & Tombs   Pharaohs & Queens   Archaeological Sites & Cities  
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.
