New Book: Egyptian Archaeology

Blackwell Books

Edited by Willeke Wendrich. I have seen a preview of the first chapter and it looks great. You can see the full Table of Contents on Amazon.

"Egyptian Archaeology" explores ancient Egypt using a uniquely archaeological approach, drawing on original research to both synthesize and challenge existing scholarship. It is written by leading Egyptologists, based on original research and fieldwork. It illustrates how practical research is a vital component of any theory-based discussion about the ancient world. It examines the cultural and historical processes of ancient Egypt from a global perspective. It is visually engaging with over 80 illustrations. The chapters explore fundamental issues and themes, but focus on specific periods and key archaeological sites.
