The civilization of Ancient Egypt has long fascinated scholars and lay readers alike. This reference contains more than 2300 detailed entries - over 1000 more than the first edition - along with photographs and maps. Its coverage includes: archaeological discoveries, including the long lost cities of Canopus and Menouthis; the eras preceding the unification of Egypt, around 3000 BC; the eras following the fall of the New Kingdom in 1070 BC; the results of DNA studies of existing mummies; political alliances; and social and religious developments. Each entry has been updated in this edition to reflect scholarship since the publication of the last edition. The volume also contains a list of further readings to supplement all major entries, a bibliography, index, and a glossary.
