This is the first reference work in English to provide systematic coverage of the archaeology of this region from the earliest finds of the Paleolithic period through to the fourth century A.D.. This lavishly illustrated encyclopedia features over 300 A-Z entries on all of the major areas of the study of ancient Egypt, including artifacts, short biographies of prominent Egyptologists, buildings, archaeological sites and techniques, and more, all contributed by an international team of the most eminent scholars in the field, many of them currently excavating in Egypt.
The Encyclopedia also includes 14 overview articles on the history and significance of each period; maps; a chronology of periods and dynasties, suggestions for further reading, and a comprehensive index.
