Reviewed by Francesca: The first part of the book introduces a comprehensive, condensed yet accurate summary of Ancient Egyptian history. The second part presents archaeological details and plans of the main cities of Upper and Lower Egypt, as well as Nubia. The last part offers a description of Ancient Egyptian society, with its scribes, its army, its religion, and its gods. The authors have also included a list of kings and pharaohs. Readers will see how the pyramids were hypothetically built through reconstructions and diagrams. Excellent maps, a glossary and a bibliography are to be found at the end of this wonderfully illustrated book. Highly recommended, it makes a good reference for all.

From the book cover: Medical analysis of the mummified bodies of the pharaohs has been described in many books. However this volume shows that the same techniques can be used to study ordinary Egyptians as well. The twenty-one papers in this volume were presented at a British Museum conference in 1990 by leading authorities in paleopathology, molecular archaeology, archaeobotany and archaeozoology. From the diseases that plagued Egyptians to the potential that ancient DNA analysis offers for recreating family relationships, this volume shows the extraordinary potential modern techniques for revealing ancient lives.

book coverBoats
Dilwyn Jones
ISBN 0292740395
© 1995   University of Texas Press
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.
