Synopsis This comprehensive survey of Egyptian society and history transforms our understanding of this remarkable civilisation. Fully illustrated and based on decades of excavation evidence, this is an original, thought-provoking and important book. For this second edition, Barry Kemp has completely revised his original text to include the latest developments in the field and fuller, more accessible information and has extended the chronological scope to look at the last millennium of Egyptian history. Kemp's book is an indispensable text for all students of Ancient Egypt and general readers.
Short Description: Ranging across Ancient Egyptian material culture, social and economic experiences, and the mindset of its people, this book includes two chapters exploring the last ten centuries of Ancient Egyptian civilization and who, in ethnic terms, the ancients were. It is suitable for the students of Ancient Egypt.
