Description


"Manual of Egyptian Archaeology" is a detailed guide to the study of Ancient Egypt, with reference to significant discoveries, history, notable archaeologists, and much more. This fascinating volume is perfect for those studying the subject or even travellers and others with an interest in Egypt. Sir Gaston Camille Charles Maspero (1846 - 1916) was a French Egyptologist famous for popularising the term "Sea Peoples" in an 1881 paper. Contents include: "Architecture-Civil and Military", "Private Dwellings", "Fortresses", "Public Works", "Religious Architecture", "Materials and Principles of Construction", "Temples", "Decoration", "Tombs", "Mastabs", "Royal Tombs and Pyramids", "Tombs of the Theben Empire: The Rock-cut Timbs", "Painting and Sculpture", etc. Other notable works by this author include: "Art in Egypt" (1912), "The Dawn of Civilization: Egypt and Chald a" (1894), and "Egyptian Arch ology" (1892). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
