very very very detailed book that can be a bore this was a text for one of my upper div courses.
Excellent read As per prior reviews, archaeology than strict history, but fascinating nonetheless Would have liked a bibliography My 2nd ed has decent notes, but left out a bibliography altogether Color me nonplussed Despite paucity of photographs also noted by previous reviewer , illustrations maps are well conceived and convey abundant information efficiently.
Interesting and informative, but definitely not light reading I consider it something to check out after you ve familiarized yourself with Ancient Egypt through introductory sources.
