Summary
  • Widely considered the best guide ever written to the monuments of ancient Egypt, William Murnane's book has been fully revised and updated by another distinguished Egyptologist, Aidan Dodson. A chapter on the great sights of Islamic and Christian Cairo has been contributed by Nicholas Warner, who also wrote the practical information. Combining a guide with a compact yet wide-ranging cultural history, The Ancient Egypt Guide contains:
  • A complete background to the civilization of ancient Egypt, including its people and institutions
  • Descriptions of the sites, with detailed plans and notes for all major and many minor monuments, all fully cross-referenced to the text
  • Itineraries of the most significant Pharaonic remains, Christian sites, and Islamic monuments around Cairo
  • Detailed surveys of major monuments and accessible sites off the beaten track
  • Over 250 area maps, plans and photographs, including 56 pages in color
  • Practical information and indexes
  • Stimulating and informative, this essential guidebook brings the pageant of ancient and medieval Egypt vividly to life. Book jacket
  • Aidan Dodson is a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Archaeology & Anthropology at the University of Bristol and the author of a dozen books. He regularly devises and leads tours to Egypt. Book jacket
