Although the civilization along the Nile in ancient Egypt had long fascinated specialist and lay readers alike, Facts On File's Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt was the first single-volume reference to this extraordinary culture, bringing together a wealth of information. This expanded and revised edition now covers the period from Egypt's predynastic era around 3200 B.C.E. to the suicide of Cleopatra and Mark Antony in the face of Roman conquest in 30 B.C.E. More than 2,200 alphabetically arranged entries provide accessible and concise information on all aspects of ancient Egypt, from its rulers, gods and goddesses, and cities to artistic themes, religious beliefs, writing, and daily life.
Designed for both browsing and ready reference, Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt, Revised Edition is a concise, accessible guide that will appeal to student and general readers alike.
