The fragmentary evidence allows us only tantalising glimpses of the sophisticated and complex society of the ancient Egyptians. Carolyn Graves-Brown draws on funerary remains, tomb paintings, architecture and textual evidence to explore all aspects of women in Egypt from goddessses and queens to women as the 'vessels of creation'. This is a wide ranging and revealing account told with authority and verve.
