The complete cities of ancient Egypt by S. R Snape( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Japanese and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ancient Egyptian cities and towns have until recently been one of the least-studied and least-published aspects of this great ancient civilization. Now new research and excavation are transforming our knowledge. The Complete Cities of Ancient Egypt is the first book to bring these latest discoveries to a wide general and scholarly audience, and to provide a comprehensive overview of what we know about ancient settlement during the dynastic period. Divided in two halves, the book opens with an account of the development of urban settlement in Egypt, describing the pattern of urban life, from food production, government, crime and health to schooling, leisure, ancient tourism, and the interaction of the living community with the dead. The second half of the book takes the reader on a trip down the Nile from Aswan to the Delta, giving a comprehensive account of all cities and towns with details for each of their discovery, excavation and important finds, supported by maps and plans as well as recent photographs. This book is sure to appeal to all those concerned with urban design and history, as well as tourists, students and Egyptophiles

Egyptian temples by S. R Snape( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colossal stone temples are one of the most immediately recognisable products of ancient Egyptian civilisation: distinctive in appearance, striking in sheer size and impressive in the skill shown in the carving and painting of their walls. This book looks at what is known about Egyptian temples, their chronological development, and the range of different religious structures referred to under the general heading of temples. Different chapters explain, with illustrations, the nature of Egyptian gods and why they needed temples to built for them, what went on within the buildings, and how priests, acting on behalf of the king, served the god on a daily basis and in regular festivals which involved the population as a whole. It explains the underlying ideas which result in Egyptian temples developing such a particular and peculiar appearance and why both architecture and decoration in Egyptian temples reflect different periods of temple building and different types of temple. -- Back cover

"The site of Zawiyet Umm el-Rakham, on Egypt's Mediterranean coast 300 km west of Alexandria, was one of the largest and most important of the fortresses built by Ramesses II. It was constructed in order to protect Egypt's trade links in the Eastern Mediterranean and to guard Egypt itself from the invasions of Libyan tribesmen. The site was briefly investigated by the archaeologist Labib Habachi in the 1950s and, since 1994, has been the subject of a major archaeological project under the auspices of the University of Liverpool, led by Dr. Steven Snape"--Author's website
