Product description

The great pyramids of Giza, Tutankhamun, the Great Sphinx, Cleopatra, and Ramesses II: the names and achievements of Ancient Egypt are legendary. Situated along the Nile River, the Ancient Egyptian civilization began around 3150 BC and lasted over three millennia until it was conquered by Rome in 31 BC. The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Ancient Egypt expands upon the information presented in the first with a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on Egyptian rulers, bureaucrats, and commoners whose records have survived, as well as ancient society, religion, and gods.

Review quote

Packed with engaging information...Recommended. Library Journal This volume is by a well-known Egyptologist provides the interested reader/researcher with a wealth of information that can serve as a prelude to further research...Of tremendous value is the extensive set of bibliographies, well over one hundred pages of useful resources...Such a combination of resources in one modest volume will serve scholars and yet is not so overwhelming as to intimidate the more casual reader. American Reference Books Annual This dictionary...is quite accessible to the general public. Booklist
