The experience of ancient Egypt by A. Rosalie David( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 2,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this survey, Rosalie David shows how the attitudes, opinions and working practices of Egyptologists have shaped the structure of their subject. The Experience of Ancient Egypt provides a portrait of what we know about ancient Egypt today, examining issues of religion, beliefs and practices surrounding death, everyday life, and literature. David then looks at the history of Egyptology itself--tracing the discipline from its classical roots, through the deciphering of hieroglyphs in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, to the most up-to-date biomedical and archaeological techniques. --From publisher's description

Discovering ancient Egypt by A. Rosalie David( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the center of Discovering Ancient Egypt is a survey of every important tomb, temple, palace or domestic site which has been excavated and studied. Packed with unusual illustrations, this section tells of the discovery of each site, its excavation and, in the case of sites such as Abu Simbel and Philae, a look at modern rebuilding and restoration projects. Rounding off the book is an outline history of Egypt from pre-dynastic times to the Graeco-Roman period which demonstrates how the evidence derived from the excavations detailed in the earlier pages of the book has helped Egyptologists to reconstruct the main developments of the civilization. Discovering Ancient Egypt is illustrated in color and black and white with specially commissioned photographs and rarely seen drawings from early studies of ancient Egypt

Egyptian mummies and modern science by A. Rosalie David( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Egyptian mummies have always aroused popular and scientific interest; however, most modern studies, although significantly increased in number and range, have been published in specialist journals. Now, this unique book, written by a long-established team of scientists, brings this exciting, cross-disciplinary area of research to a wider readership. It shows how this team's multidisciplinary, investigative methods and the unique resource of the Egyptian Mummy Tissue Bank are being used for the new major international investigations of disease evolution and ancient Egyptian pharmacy and pharmacology. It also assesses the current status of palaeopathology and ancient DNA research, and treatments available for conserving mummified remains. Descriptions of the historical development of Egyptian mummifications and medicine and detailed references to previous scientific investigations provide the context for firsthand accounts of cutting-edge research by prominent specialists in this field, demonstrating how these techniques can contribute to a new perspective on Egyptology

The mummy's tale : the scientific and medical investigation of Natsef-Amun, priest in the temple at Karnak by A. Rosalie David( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Natsef-Amun was a priest and scribe at Karnak in Ancient Egypt. He lived and worked in the reign of Ramesses XI, more than 3,000 years ago. When he died his body was mummified and buried in a manner befitting his rank. During excavations in the 19th century at Deir el Bahri, near Thebes, his coffin and mummy were found and transported to Europe. The mummy was eventually purchased by a Leeds banker who presented it to the Leeds Philosophical Society whose members carried out a scientific and medical examination in 1828. This was one of the first examinations of its kind, and found a body 'in an unusually perfect state of preservation' which had been mummified in the elaborate way described by Herodotus and other classical writers." "The Leeds investigation naturally reflected the scientific limitations of the day, and when Dr. Rosalie David and the members of the Manchester Mummy Research Project were given the opportunity to perform a new examination using all the new scientific techniques available, they welcomed the chance. Using radiology, CT-scans, endoscopy and histology, serology and dental studies, a modern autopsy was performed on Natsef-Amun more than 3,000 years after his death. Using virtually nondestructive techniques, the examination team has made fascinating discoveries not only about the death of Natsef-Amun (was he strangled?) but also about his life. We find that he was in his middle forties at the time of his death, somewhat tall for the period, with a wrinkled brow and the usual shaven head of a priest." "Illustrated with dozens of fascinating photographs, The Mummy's Tale brings to life in extraordinary detail a man who was 'god's servant' in the temple at Karnak a thousand years before the birth of Christ."--Jacket
