Book Summary:

Remains to be Seen is a fascinating series which looks at the past through the archaeological evidence that remains today. Ancient Egypt looks at who the Egyptians were, and their everyday life, what Gods and Goddesses they believed in, and their religion. Also discussed is the history of Egypt during the reigns of the two Pharaohs - Akhenaten and Tutankhamun, the history behind their writing and art (hieroglyphs, papyrus, painting and sculpture), and finally the history of Egypt under the Greeks and Romans, and how the past is discovered today. There are fact boxes which highlight key facts and the text is supported by a wonderful array of photographs and maps. Ancient Egypt also features a time-line, glossary and full index.

Book Summary:

From the Valley of the Kings to Las Vegas, Egypt looms large in the Western imagination. So why are we intrigued by pyramids and practices of mummification? Is it because the ancient Egyptians fetishized material objects? And what do Egyptian remains tell us about biography, embodiment, memory, materiality, the self, and, indeed, ourselves? This book considers how excavated objects reveal ancient Egyptians' experiences of their material world. It also explores existential questions that not only preoccupied ancient Egyptians, but continue to fascinate people today. What is the essence of persons and things? How might we understand the situated experiences of material life? How might objects successfully mediate between worlds? Meskell ultimately moves forward through time and examines the consumption of Egyptian material objects in the contemporary world, including Las Vegas. Meskell provides an elegant analysis of the aesthetics of ancient Egyptian material culture and insights into its mysteries, including our own ongoing fascination.
