AUC Press's Description

The ancient Egyptians’ greatest monuments, ranging from Abu Simbel in the south to Cleopatra’s palaces in Alexandria, were built over a period of three millennia, and yet a common architectural tradition links them all. Dieter Arnold here provides a single-volume guide to one of the most remarkable architectures of the ancient world. Entries are presented for each of the most important ancient sites, covering monuments as diverse as the Step Pyramid of Djoser, the tombs of the Valley of the Kings, and the great Ptolemaic temples that line the Upper Nile. Key aspects of design and construction are also considered in separate entries, covering aspects such as building and construction techniques. With more than 600 illustrations, this guide provides a comprehensive introduction to ancient Egyptian monuments. “A splendidly produced and illustrated edition.”—Peter Clayton, Minerva magazine “This edition is very much to be welcomed.”—T. G. H. James, formerly Keeper of Egyptian Antiquities, The British Museum
