The mummy in ancient Egypt : equipping the dead for eternity by Salima Ikram ( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 701 libraries worldwide
"The Mummy in Ancient Egypt is the first modern account to survey the entire panoply of Egyptian burial equipment over 3,000 years. It first examines burial rites and tomb development, from the Giza pyramids to the underground chambers in the Valley of the Kings and beyond. Great discoveries are described, from Belzoni's early explorations and the uncovering at Thebes of the royal burial caches to Tutankhamun's magnificent tomb and recent scientific detective-work using X-rays and CAT-scanners." "The book then provides the most detailed survey ever of changing burial practices during the pharaonic era. Working from the mummy outwards, Ikram and Dodson reveal the evolution of methods for treating the body, wrapping it, adorning it and sheltering it. In so doing, they give for the first time a comprehensive account of the development of mummy masks, coffins, sarcophagi and canopic equipment. All the latest research is incorporated, some carried out by the authors themselves."--BOOK JACKET.

The complete royal families of Ancient Egypt by Aidan Dodson ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 588 libraries worldwide
"This book illuminates the lives of some 1,300 kings, queens, princes and princesses of ancient Egypt, unravelling family relationships and exploring the parts they played in politics, cultural life and religion. It ranges from the dawn of Egyptian history, when only isolated glimpses are available of the royal family, through the vast progeny of Ramesses II, and ends with the fiendishly complicated - and blood-soaked - interconnections of the Ptolemies and Cleopatras."--BOOK JACKET.
Monarchs of the Nile by Aidan Dodson ( Book )
5 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 430 libraries worldwide
"This book presents a concise account of the lives and times of some of the more significant occupants of the Egyptian throne, from the unification of the country around 3000 B.C. down to the extinction of native rule just under three millennia later. Some, such as Tuthmosis III, had a major impact on their time, and were remembered by their own people until the very civilization collapsed. Others, such as Tutankhamun, were soon forgotten by the Egyptians themselves, only to burst into popular culture thousands of years after their deaths, as a result of the labors of modern archeologists. Still more remain unknown outside the small circle of professional archeologists, but led lives that call out for wider dissemination. This book sets out to provide a mix of all three categories, in an attempt to present a balanced view of Egyptian kings and their range of achievements."--BOOK JACKET.
The tomb in Ancient Egypt : royal and private sepulchres from the early dynastic period to the Romans by Aidan Dodson ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 409 libraries worldwide
"From the pyramids along the Nile and the royal burial ground in the Valley of the Kings to the tombs of queens such as Ramesses II's consort Nefertari and the large number of private tombs of nobles like Rekhmire and Ramose, The Tomb in Ancient Egypt is an unparalleled guide for aficionados and Egyptologists alike." "Written by two experts in the field, this new book traces burial practices in Egypt over three millennia, from the dawn of Egyptian history to the Roman domination. It also illuminates the work of key scholars who excavated and catalogued their finds for posterity, and it includes a comprehensive list of the principal cemeteries, with glossary and maps for ease of reference. Richly illustrated with photographs of the monuments and their art, plus numerous diagrams and reconstruction drawings, this is an essential and authoritative resource for all those passionate about ancient Egypt."--BOOK JACKET.

The complete royal families of Ancient Egypt : with over 300 illustrations, 90 in color by Aidan Dodson ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: This groundbreaking book illuminates the lives of some 1,300 kings, queens, princes, and princesses of ancient Egypt, unraveling family relationships and exploring the parts they played in politics, cultural life, and religion. The authors begin with a basic summary of the structure of the pharaonic state, including the nature of ancient Egyptian kingship itself, and then introduce key members of the royal family. This is followed by a chronological survey of the royal family from c. 3100 BC to the last Cleopatra. For each dynasty, or significant part of a dynasty, the authors provide an historical overview of the period, a summary listing of the kings, and a discussion of their families' relationships. This superb biographical history of ancient Egypt is handsomely illustrated with hundreds of photographs, line drawings, and genealogical trees.
