Editorial Reviews

"In conclusion, the uninitiated will have a tough read with this ’quick’ access to Egyptology, and Egyptologists will have difficulty critically evaluating the various proposed developments. Therefore, it seems this book should serve as a very brief insight into certain themes for already initiated experts, and for that, it provides excellent points of departure indeed."  (Bibliotheca Orientalis, 1 September 2014)

"Willeke Wendrich’s edited volume, Egyptian archaeology, is perhaps the most ambitious of the three on offer here in terms of its scope and I would strongly recommend  it."  (Antiquity, 1 January 2013)

"Recommended. All academic levels/libraries." (Choice , 1 April 2011)
