THE THAMES AND HUDSON DICTIONARY OF ANCIENT EGYPT - WORLD OF ART

THE THAMES AND HUDSON DICTIONARY OF ANCIENT EGYTP - WORLD OF ART 

Ancient Egyptian civilization offers a dazzling – sometimes bewildering – array of kings and dynasties, gods and goddesses, temples and tombs. This new dictionary provides a comprehensive, authoritative reference guide to an endlessly fascinating subject.

The most extensive and up-to-date single-volume Dictionary of Ancient Egypt – an indispensable guide to the greatest civilization of the ancient world
Separate entry for every significant king of Egypt from the unification of the country in c. 3000 BC to the conquest of Alexander the Great in 332 BC
Famous pharaohs such as Khufu (Cheops), Akhenaten, Tutankhamun and Ramesses the Great as well as lesser-known kings such as Rudamun and Takelot
All the major sites from Alexandria to Abu Simbel, Giza to Thebes, and less familiar monuments from Abgig to Zawiyet el-Aryan
Covers queens and courtiers, gods and goddesses, temples and tombs, as well as literature, language and medicine
What was the Aten? How did they make mummies? Where was the land of Punt? Who performed at the sed festival? When was the battle of Kadesh?
Authoritative text, incorporating the latest research and discoveries
Superb illustrations, many in colour, across the full range of topics – objects, jewelry, statues, art and architecture, landscapes
Includes king-list and reference section with maps and key site plans

Toby Wilkinson holds a doctorate in Egyptology from the University of Cambridge where he is a fellow of Clare College. He lectures widely on ancient Egypt and has extensive experience of the archaeological sites in the Nile Valley and Egyptian deserts.
