Book Cover
A Companion to Ancient Egypt

Offering unprecedented breadth and depth of coverage, and delivered in a highly readable style, this Companion provides the very latest, well-illustrated accounts of the major and current aspects of Egyptology. A Companion to Ancient Egypt provides an in-depth discussion of Ancient Egypt, whose development lasted well over three and a half millennia. Areas of discussion have been divided into physical context, history, economic and social mechanisms, language, literature, and the visual arts while historically oriented chapters reveal an emphasis on thematic issues. A chronological table with additional historical comment is included, allowing readers to locate each historical chapter in its overall context.

The Companion brings together nearly 50 newly commissioned essays by an international team of leading scholars to provide new and illustrative coverage of one of the most successful civilizations the world has ever seen.
