This is a study of the procurement and processing of raw materials ... employed by the ancient Egyptians over the five millennia of the Predynastic and Pharaonic periods (c. 5500-332 BC).

Among the topics covered are stone quarrying, the building of temples and pyramids, techniques for preserving meat, fish, and poultry, the production of glass and faience, the baking of bread, the brewing of beers, the preparatioin of oils and perfumes, and the mummification of humans and animals.

Overview

Aimed primarily at Egyptologists and archaeologists, this book covers all aspects of craftwork in ancient Egypt, from the construction of the pyramids and the carving of statues to techniques of mummification, boat-building, jewelery making, ancient brewing, carpentry, hairstyling, tailoring and basket weaving. Drawing on archaeological, experimental, ethnographic and laboratory work, it is the first book since the 1920s to describe current research into the actual basics of life in Pharaonic Egypt. The twenty-five chapters, by well-regarded scholars, present up-to-date and accessible information on a wide array of techniques.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is a much needed, well-illustrated, and engrossing update on the status of research on materials and technology, and with the added attraction of multidisciplinary colaboraton on key topics." International Journal of African Historical Studies

"...a splendid companion." Ancient History Bulletin

"The editors have enlisted the specialist knowledge of thirty-four scholars and the resulting volume is very impressive...drawings and pictures illustrate most chapters, good use being made of the rich visual documentation found in scenes of daily life in Egyptian tombs." Times Literary Supplement

"...Ancient Egyptian Materials and Technology is very likely to be the standard reference tool on these subjects for the next several decades. It will be difficult to create a volume as comprehensive, clearly written, well documented and highly illustrated as Professors Nicholson and Shaw have prepared." Charles Kolb, The Reviewer

"This monumental encyclopedic volume sets new standards of excellence....An essential resource for reference collections and material culture specialists." Choice

"[a] new, long awaited book...Nicholson and Shaw have produced a very useful reference tool for those involved in research in the field of Egyptian materials and technologies...it presents a very useful summary of known facts and many of the scientific techniques that can be applied...it is readable and covers a wide enough area to be a useful reference." SAS Bulletin

"...this volume offers a new standard reference for scholars, students, and museum professionals alike." Religious Studies Review

"A much-needed, well illustrated, and engrossing update on the status of research on materials and technology, and with the added attraction of multidisciplinary collaboration on key approaches."
