Dawn of Egyptian art by Diana Craig Patch( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cultural icons of Pharaonic Egypt, from the Great Sphinx at Giza to the famous burial of Tutankhamun, are among the world's most renowned works of art. Less well known, but equally impressive, are the rare and ancient images of people, animals, and landscapes made by the Egyptians who lived prior to the age of the pharaohs, when the formal conventions of Egyptian art had not yet fully evolved. With illustrations of more than 180 objects created from about 4000 to 2650 BC, Dawn of Egyptian Art presents the art forms and iconography in which the early Egyptians recorded their beliefs about the land where they lived, the yearly events that took place there, and what they thought was important to the eternal survival of their world. Comprehensive texts explore the origins and early development of the culture of ancient Egypt while discussing the relationship between image and writing as well as the representation of the self and the universe
Egypt uncovered by W. V Davies( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egypt Uncovered is the story of some of the major aspects of ancient Egypt, rewritten in the light of the most recent discoveries and with the benefit of unprecedented access to key archaeological sites in Egypt and the Sudan and the experts working there." "Five key issues, which are also of particular interest to layman and scholar alike, are tackled and re-examined in a lively, thought-provoking and accessible way. Studies include: the origins of Egyptian civilization and the factors that led to some of its peculiarities and outstanding durability; the pyramids, as symbols of resurrection and royal power; gold, its importance to the Egyptians and the efforts they made to acquire it; religion, and the recent research revealing new details on its role in everyday Egyptian life; and mummies, why and how the Egyptians made them and the wealth of information they are now yielding with the help of modern medical techniques." "With 200 full-color illustrations of important sites, excavations and excavators, newly discovered objects, and accurate computer reconstructions and graphics - most of which were specially commissioned - Egypt Uncovered provides an up-to-date introduction to the latest advances in our knowledge of one of the world's greatest civilizations."--BOOK JACKET

Egypt and Nubia : gifts of the desert by Renée F Friedman( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egypt and Nubia: Gifts of the Desert originates in an international colloquium of the same name held in the British Museum in 1998. It comprises eighteen papers, written by leading scholars, each of whom explores an aspect of the use and occupation of the deserts lying to the east and west of the Nile Valley by the ancient Egyptians and Nubians and their prehistoric ancestors. Exploding the old myth that Egypt was simply the 'Gift of the Nile' and illuminating the wider environment, this volume represents a new understanding of how these deserts have been perceived and exploited through time."--Jacket

Predynastic settlement ceramics of Upper Egypt : a comparative study of the ceramics of Hemamieh, Nagada, and Hierakonpolis by Renée F Friedman( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the discovery of the Predynastic cultures of Upper Egypt a little over a century ago, the pottery found within their graves has been used to date and define the temporal and social development of these earliest settled inhabitants of the Nile Valley. The ceramics from the settlements of Predynastic Upper Egypt, however, have never been described fully, and this diverse body of information has remained an unexploited resource for furthering our understanding of the developments and interactions which led to the establishment of Dynastic Egyptian civilization. The focus of this study is to investigate the value for Predynastic research of the ceramic assemblages from various localities within the Upper Egyptian settlements at Hemamieh, Nagada, and Hierakonpolis
