"The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt is the only history to provide detailed historical coverage of Egypt from the early Stone Age to its incorporation into the Roman Empire. The essays and beautiful illustrations portray the emergence and development of the distinctive civilization of the ancient Egyptians covering the period from 700,000 B.C. to A.D. 311. The authors outline the principal sequence of political events, including detailed examinations of the three so-called Intermediate Periods previously regarded as 'dark ages'."--Jacket
Ancient Egypt : a very short introduction by Ian Shaw ( )
6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The ancient Egyptians are an enduring source of fascination-mummies and pyramids, curses and rituals have captured our imaginations for generations. We all have a mental picture of ancient Egypt, but is it the right one? How much do we really know about this once great civilization? In this absorbing introduction, Ian Shaw, one of the foremost authorities on Ancient Egypt, describes how our current ideas about Egypt are based not only on the thrilling discoveries made by early Egyptologists but also on fascinating new kinds of evidence produced by modern scientific and linguistic analyses. He also explores the changing influences on our responses to these finds, by examining the impact of Egyptology on various aspects of popular culture such as literature, cinema, opera, and contemporary art. He considers all aspects of ancient Egyptian culture, from tombs and mummies to the discovery of artefacts and the decipherment of hieroglyphs, and from despotic pharaohs to animal-headed gods. From the general reader interested in Ancient Egypt, to students and teachers of ancient history and archaeology, to museum-goers, this Very Short Introduction will not disappoint

Ancient Egyptian materials and technology by Paul T Nicholson ( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a study of the procurement and processing of raw materials employed by the ancient Egyptians over the five millennia of the Predynastic and Pharaonic periods (c. 5500-332 B.C.). During this time, not only were there variations in the preferred materials for particular types of artefacts, but also gradual processes of technological change. Among the topics covered are stone quarrying, the building of temples and pyramids, techniques for preserving meat, fish, and poultry, the production of glass and faience, the baking of bread, the brewing of beers, the preparation of oils and perfumes, and the mummification of humans and animals. Each chapter has been written by one or more specialists, drawing not only on conventional Egyptological skills but also on expertise in the natural sciences as applied to archaeological data."--Jacket
