Summary

Tutankhamen, looted pyramids, the Valley of the Kings; few civilizations excite the imagination like that of ancient Egypt. Yet, to date, there has been no comprehensive introduction to Egyptian archaeology. From its prehistoric past through the pharaonic dynasties and Greco-Roman period, this skillfully organized book guides the reader through a chronological overview of Egyptrs"s dynamic history, revealed within the context of archaeological evidence. Connecting the findings from recent excavations with the discoveries of the late 19th and 20th centuries, this text examines the evidence and preservation of Egyptrs"s complex society, including its geography, language, architecture, and culture, as well as the changes to the civilization as marked by archaeological evidence. Enriched by nearly 200 illustrations, maps, site and building plans, and photographs, this text provides specific information from onsite excavations. Methods of field work and analyses are discussed to provide a thorough understanding of how archaeologists and Egyptologists have acquired their information, and how these methods of investigation have evolved over their more than 100 years of research.
