Reviews - What do customers think about Who's Who in Ancient Egypt?

An excellent resource  Sep 8, 2002
This book is an excellent resource for any one serious about studying Egypt. It gives detailed information about every one from the highest pharaoh to the third scribe of the graineries of Amun at Karnak. Each entry is complete with dynasty and occupation as well every other piece of information you could want. The only problem is that it is a resource, and not a great book for beginners or anyone who wants to now how the individuals shaped history. This is not a book you just sit down and read. Its simply biographies, but incredible biographies. It is a must have for anyone who wants to complete their understanding of ancient Egypt.
Good reference for the beginner  Sep 3, 2001
This is a good at-hand reference for the armchair Egyptologist, or anyone who needs quick, concise information about numerous and important ancient Egyptians. Because some of the entries are very brief, however, it's probably not as useful for an expert in the field.
excellent reference  Jun 16, 2000
Who are the people behind the world's greatest ancient civilisation is the crucial question which drives this great book. From the most famous to the lowly people, from Egypt's heights of prosperity to its depths of despair, the people behind the names, both in their original and their Greek transliterated form, are revealed in an English language alphabetical order. Many of the museum collections have been examined and elaborated on. The first entry in the book is a scribe, Aakheperkare-senb and the last one is Zoser (aka Djoser Netjerykhet). Although there are no illustrations, it is an excellent and well-written reference, a must for students and scholars.
