Description

Jan Krzysztof Winnicki passed away in February 2009. This volume, translated by Dorota Dzierzbicka, represents the past twenty years of his research on the foreigners of Egypt. Foreign ethnic groups have been present in the Nile Valley throughout the entire history of Egypt but information about them is scarce. Using the sources and evidence available, this volume seeks to determine the role, place and significance of foreigners in social and political structures of late Pharaonic and Ptolemaic Egypt. 645pshow more

Review quote

... a monumental piece of scholarship... Late Egypt and Her Neighbours will doubtless become the standard reference guide for those investigating questions of foreign population in Egypt in the last two millennia B.C. It will serve as an invaluable resource to cultural anthropologists, papyrologists, Egyptologists, and ancient historians, who owe Winnicki a big debt of gratitude for writing it.' -- Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnectionsshow more
