Annales du Service des Antiquités de l'Egypte

Cahier No. 40: Perspectives on Ancient Egypt: Studies in Honor of Edward Brovarski

Edited by Zahi Hawass, Peter Der Manuelian, and Ramadan B. Hussein

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

From the female clergy during the New Kingdom to the significance of the semi-precious stone carnelian in Egyptian royal jewelry.
For centuries, Egyptian civilization and its antiquities have inspired passionate interest. Archaeologists, engineers, astronomers, poets, painters, people of different cultures, and travelers have been riveted by Egypt's ancient monuments. How much do we really know about these awe-inspiring wonders of the ancient world? This publication provides an up-to-date account of archaeology in the land of the pharaohs, including new discoveries and recent studies. This authoritative volume remains the definitive source for the findings of the various archaeological excavations undertaken in Egypt. For more than a hundred years, the Annales du Service has been studied by Egyptologists, students, and laypersons alike. Published under the auspices of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, its contributors include some of the most well-known Egyptologists in the world covering a broad range of archaeological disciplines and spectrums.
