Reviews

"this is an essential work for anyone wanting to know more about how ancient communities on the Nile created one of the most successful and lasting civilisations of the ancient world." - Ancient Egypt

"Undoubtedly, it provides for a coherent, comprehensive and, in many respects, reasonably personalized picture of the Ancient Egyptian civilization that can satisfy interest of both Egyptological and non-Egyptological readers." - Ivan Ladynin, Association Égyptologique Reine Élisabeth
