Reviews - What do customers think about Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt?

Great  Dec 31, 2007
It's a very informative and useful book for any Ancient Egyptian buff.
Don't hesitate to buy it's a wonderful book to have in you collection! :)
Not up to academic standards but ok for a basic reference  Oct 23, 2002
There is no bibliography or footnotes or any citations at all in this book and that is always a bad sign. Sure the pictures are cool to look at, there are ok timelines and tables, and just having an alphabetical source of Egyptian terms is wonderful. But this should not be somone's primary source for Egyptian information especially if you are doing anything academically like writing a school paper or giving a talk on Egypt. I'll tell you this for certain, it is not worth [the money]...
not impressed  Nov 22, 2001
Having done much research of Ancient Egypt from credible resourses, I found the Encyclopedia to be lacking. Many of the "articles" had little usable information or even incorrect information. Some of the information in this Encyclopedia was the same as that found in the 1880's Manual Of Ancient History that I own. This information, I must add, has been disproved by many new discoveries. I was very disappointed by this book. In my opinion, it wasn't worth the ... I spent on it. There are many other more credible books available that are more worth the money.
An invaluable research tool.  Jun 3, 2001
For anyone who has a passing interest in the ancient Egyptian culture, to those who need information for school reports or so forth, this book is incredibly useful.

All the entries are listed alphabetically for easy reference and cross referenced as well, so if you wanted to know about a certain queen or Pharaoh, there will be entries listed with more information on subjects pertaining to that particular entry.

Combined with the reference book Who's Who in Ancient Egypt, you have an invaluable set of resource books.

great  Mar 31, 2001
this book is worth 10 stars. there is so much info. this book has everything in it, including all the pharaoh's from ramesses the great to den. this book talks about the the queen's of egypt from Nefertiti to a'at. the every day things, different cities, religious in egypt, including gods, their spiritual ideals,are all in this book. If you have ever wondered about the armarna, period how many wives ramesses the great had, what egyptian men and women dress was, how dwarf's were looked upon, or what egyptians used for pillows this is the book for you. it's the best book i'v bought and i'm sure that you will love it as much as me.
