The golden face of Tutankhamun was garlanded with fresh flowers exquisitely preserved after 3,000 years in his innermost coffin. In the tomb a model of a granary was found full to the brim with seeds -- emmer wheat, fenugreek and chick-pea. Brooms of reed and grass used to tidy up after the burial remained intact. Usually ignored by grave robbers intent on gold, baskets, fabrics and papyri, timber and unguent vases buried with Tutankhamun have survived. Each chapter ofPharaoh's Flowerscarries detailed descriptions of the plant species found or represented in the tomb. The plants and flowers of ancient Egypt are brought back to life in this botanical exploration of the Pharaoh's tomb. This new, second edition of this important and fascinating book, first published in 1990,has been fully updated, to take account of recent finds and interpretations. New features include: a revised and annotated Further Reading section, now with a guide to websites; a glossary of botanical terms; a new diagram of the tomb; additional illustrations; and a Bible References section, keyed to the main text, with quotations from the Old Testament that illuminate ancient botanical knowledge and practices

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bible is full of references to trees and plants. Jesus himself frequently used flowers and fruits to illustrate his teaching. But which flower is meant by 'lily of the field'? Why did the Hebrews use the hissop plant to daub their lintels? What role did the olive tree and its fruit play in the ancient economy? This book sets out to answer these and many other questions. In recent years much scientific and archaeological research has been devoted to the botany of Bible lands, and many new and exciting facts discovered. Nigel Hepper has distilled the expertise of a long career at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and much information not readily available to the general reader, in this new and comprehensive study of the plants, flowers, trees and vegetables of Bible lands. The Baker Encyclopedia of Bible Plants will help the Bible reader to: understand the many Bible references to plants; grasp the meaning of Old Testament imagery; be involved with the everyday examples Jesus used in his teaching; find meaning in the symbolism of art which used flowers and plants; be informed about land use, misuse and conservation [how plants affected the culture, lifestyle and agriculture reflected in Scripture]." -- BOOK JACKET
