A biographical dictionary of ancient Egypt by A. Rosalie David( )

34 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 2,584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Biographical Dictionary of Ancient Egypt contains more than two hundred entries on important historical and cultural figures, as well as some less well known individuals in Egypt's long history (ca. 3100 b.c.-ca. A.D. 600). Not only are rulers and members of their families listed (Akhenaten, Nefertiti), but also other significant figures who had particularly impressive or interesting tombs (Cheops, Tutankhamun), who showed great military prowess (Sethos I, Ramesses II), or who had special literary or other skills (Ipuwer, Manetho). Also featured are foreigners with whom the Egyptians came into contact (Alexander the Great), and major classical writers (Herodotus) who have left vivid descriptions of ancient Egypt." "The entries are based on original source material noted in the bibliographical references. A brief history of ancient Egypt, a glossary, a chronology of dynasties, and four maps enhance this reference work, which will be useful to scholars and all general readers interested in ancient Egypt."--BOOK JACKET
The experience of ancient Egypt by A. Rosalie David( )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 2,261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this survey, Rosalie David shows how the attitudes, opinions and working practices of Egyptologists have shaped the structure of their subject. The Experience of Ancient Egypt provides a portrait of what we know about ancient Egypt today, examining issues of religion, beliefs and practices surrounding death, everyday life, and literature. David then looks at the history of Egyptology itself--tracing the discipline from its classical roots, through the deciphering of hieroglyphs in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, to the most up-to-date biomedical and archaeological techniques. --From publisher's description

Mummies, magic, and medicine in ancient Egypt : multidisciplinary essays for Rosalie David by Campbell Price( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining approaches to ancient Egyptian religious expression, medical practice and the modern scientific study of human and material remains from Egypt and Sudan, this volume celebrates the multidisciplinary career of Professor Rosalie David OBE. The UK's first female Professor in Egyptology, Rosalie David's pioneering work at the University of Manchester on Egyptian mummies, magic and medicine has been of international importance. This volume presents research by a number of leading experts in their fields: recent archaeological fieldwork, new research on Egyptian human remains and unpublished museum objects along with reassessments of ancient Egyptian texts concerned with healing and the study of technology through experimental archaeology. Contributors try to answer some of Egyptology's most enduring questions - How did Tutankhamun die? How were the Pyramids built? How were mummies made? - along with less well-known puzzles. Rather than address these areas separately, the volume adopts the so-called 'Manchester method' instigated by Rosalie David and attempts to integrate perspectives from both traditional Egyptology and scientific analytical techniques. Much of this research has never appeared in print before, particularly that resulting from the Manchester Egyptian Mummy Project, set up in the 1970s. The resulting overview gives a good history of the discipline, illustrating how Egyptology has developed over the last forty years, and how many of the same big questions still remain. This book will be of use to researchers and students of archaeology or related disciplines with an interest in multidisciplinary approaches to understanding life and death in ancient Egypt and Sudan

Discovering ancient Egypt by A. Rosalie David( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the center of Discovering Ancient Egypt is a survey of every important tomb, temple, palace or domestic site which has been excavated and studied. Packed with unusual illustrations, this section tells of the discovery of each site, its excavation and, in the case of sites such as Abu Simbel and Philae, a look at modern rebuilding and restoration projects. Rounding off the book is an outline history of Egypt from pre-dynastic times to the Graeco-Roman period which demonstrates how the evidence derived from the excavations detailed in the earlier pages of the book has helped Egyptologists to reconstruct the main developments of the civilization. Discovering Ancient Egypt is illustrated in color and black and white with specially commissioned photographs and rarely seen drawings from early studies of ancient Egypt

"Religion and Magic in Ancient Egypt is the first book to provide a complete historical overview of the beliefs of this extraordinary civilization, dating from its earliest settlements in 5000 B.C.E. to the Roman province of the fourth century A.C.E." "As Rosalie David's study shows, every aspect of ancient Egyptian society, from education and law to medicine, birth and death, was permeated by religion and magic, and dominated by the divine life forces of the sun and the Nile. We discover the complex and intriguing world of gods and goddesses, from Anubis the jackal-headed god of death to Tauert the hippopotamus-goddess of childbirth; the cult of sacred animals; the world of oracles and seers; temples, death rituals and the afterlife. Concluding with a glossary of pharaohs, queens and deities, and new translations of Egyptian spells, this is an essential work for the students of history and Egyptology."--Jacket

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of human remains from ancient Egypt and Nubia has captured the imagination of many people for generations, giving rise to the discipline of palaeopathology and fostering bioarchaeological research. This book contains 16 papers that cover material presented at a workshop entitled 'Palaeopathology in Egypt and Nubia: A Century in Review,' held at the Natural History Museum, London (August 29-30, 2012), which formed part of a three-year research project, 'Sir Grafton Elliot Smith: Palaeopathology and the Archaeological Survey of Nubia.' The papers explore the subject of palaeopathology from its beginnings in the early 1900s through to current research themes and the impact of technological development in the field. Revealing the diverse range of methods used to study human remains in these regions, the book gives readers an insight into the fascinating work carried out over the last century, and suggests some possible future directions for the field
The mummy's tale : the scientific and medical investigation of Natsef-Amun, priest in the temple at Karnak by A. Rosalie David( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Natsef-Amun was a priest and scribe at Karnak in Ancient Egypt. He lived and worked in the reign of Ramesses XI, more than 3,000 years ago. When he died his body was mummified and buried in a manner befitting his rank. During excavations in the 19th century at Deir el Bahri, near Thebes, his coffin and mummy were found and transported to Europe. The mummy was eventually purchased by a Leeds banker who presented it to the Leeds Philosophical Society whose members carried out a scientific and medical examination in 1828. This was one of the first examinations of its kind, and found a body 'in an unusually perfect state of preservation' which had been mummified in the elaborate way described by Herodotus and other classical writers." "The Leeds investigation naturally reflected the scientific limitations of the day, and when Dr. Rosalie David and the members of the Manchester Mummy Research Project were given the opportunity to perform a new examination using all the new scientific techniques available, they welcomed the chance. Using radiology, CT-scans, endoscopy and histology, serology and dental studies, a modern autopsy was performed on Natsef-Amun more than 3,000 years after his death. Using virtually nondestructive techniques, the examination team has made fascinating discoveries not only about the death of Natsef-Amun (was he strangled?) but also about his life. We find that he was in his middle forties at the time of his death, somewhat tall for the period, with a wrinkled brow and the usual shaven head of a priest." "Illustrated with dozens of fascinating photographs, The Mummy's Tale brings to life in extraordinary detail a man who was 'god's servant' in the temple at Karnak a thousand years before the birth of Christ."--Jacket
