Ancient Egyptian Materials and Technology
Aimed primarily at Egyptologists and archaeologists, this book covers all aspects of craftwork in a ncient Egypt, from the construction of the pyramids and the carving of statues to techniques of mummification, boat-building, jewellery making, ancient brewing, carpentry, hairstyling, tailoring and basket weaving. Drawing on archaeological, experimental, ethnographic and laboratory work, it is the first book since the 1920s to describe current research into the actual basics of life in Pharaonic Egypt. The twenty-five chapters, by well-regarded scholars, present up-to-date and accessible information on a wide array of techniques.
