    DescriptionEgyptologists, art historians, philologists and anthropological archaeologists have long worked side by side in Egypt, but they often fail to understand one another's approaches. This book aims to introduce students to the archaeological side of the study of ancient Egypt and to bridge the gap between disciplines by explaining how archaeologists tackle a variety of problems. Douglas J. Brewer introduces the theoretical reasoning for each approach, as well as the methods and techniques applied to support it. This book is an essential read for any student considering further study of ancient Egypt.

    Review quote
    '... an interesting read for anyone studying ancient Egypt; as Brewer concludes, only cooperative research and a greater understanding between archaeologists, Egyptologists, geologists, biologists and art historians can give a truly comprehensive understanding of the complexity of the human experience throughout history.'
