About the Book
This fascinating guide and sourcebook features over 900 biographical entries on the people of ancient Egypt.

Who's Who in Ancient Egypt brings to life a wide and colorful variety of intriguing personalities: not only queens and kings such as Cleopatra, Nefertiti and Tutankhamun, but also Sebastet the royal hairdresser, Nakht the temple gardener, and even grave-robbers such as Amenwah — who was released for lack of evidence, but proved guilty thousands of years later when archaeologists discovered the loot in his tomb. The entries are supplemented by extensive background material, including a chapter on "Encountering the Ancient Egyptians," sections on kingship and religion, a chronology, a glossary and maps. Any reader with an interest in ancient Egypt will want this absorbing volume. [Edit review] [Delete review]
