Abstract:

The sensational discovery in 1922 of Tutankhamun's tomb, close on the heels of Britain's declaration of Egyptian independence, accelerated the growth in Egypt of both Egyptology as a formal discipline and of 'pharaonism'-popular interest in ancient Egypt - as an inspiration in the struggle for full independence. Emphasizing the three decades from 1922 until Nasser's revolution in 1952, this book looks at the ways in which Egypt developed its own archaeologies - Islamic, Coptic, and Greco-Roman, as well as the more dominant ancient Egyptian.
