Old Kingdom, New Perspectives: Egyptian Art and Archaeology 2750-2150 BC
edited by Nigel Strudwick and Helen Strudwick
Recent research on all aspects of the Old Kingdom in Egypt is presented in this volume, ranging through the Pyramid Texts, tomb architecture, ceramics, scene choice and layout, field reports, cemetery layout, tomb and temple statuary. The contributions also show how Egyptology is not stuck in its venerable traditions but that newer forms of technology are being used to great effect by Egyptologists. For example, two papers show how GIS technology ...

 Explorers and Artists in the Valley of the Kings
Roehrig, Catharine H
Egypt was very much en vogue in 19th century Europe and many scholars decided to experience all that was Egyptian at first hand.

Lives of the Ancient Egyptians: Pharaohs, Queens, Courtiers and Commoners
by Toby Wilkinson
This slightly unusual book takes the form of a series of 100 short biographies of Ancient Egyptians. Some are well known such as Akhenaten, Hatshepsut and Cleopatra, but most are much more obscure and thus allow the reader to build up a more complete picture of life in Egypt. Thus we learn of the military career of Ahmose son of Abana, a naval officer under 3 successive Pharaohs, and Paneb, a tomb robber, as well as Hesira the court dentist and ...

Nubian Pharaohs : Black Kings on the Nile

In 2003, a Swiss archaeological team working in northern Sudan uncovered one of the most remarkable Egyptological finds in recent years. At the site known as Kerma, near the third cataract of the Nile, archaeologist Charles Bonnet and his team discovered a ditch within a temple from the ancient city of Pnoubs, which contained seven monumental black granite statues. Magnificently sculpted, and in an excellent state of preservation, they portrayed ...

Tomb in Ancient Egypt
Dodson, Aidan
Like all Thames and Hudson books this is a well illustrated and designed book, but this one really stands out for the comprehensiveness and detail of the text as well. The opening third of the book looks at Egyptian beliefs concerning burial, the social context of tomds, their construction and their decoration. The majority of the book is then dedicated to a chronological survey of Egyptian tombs, noting changes in design and function and ...
