Mysterious Landsby David O'Connor (Editor), Quirke (Editor), Stephen Quirke
Egyption writing and art portrayed unknown lands both in the sense that current scholars are unsure as their actual location and in the sense that nonexistent lands were manufactured for ideological and religious reasons, and the distinction between the two can often be difficult for archaeologists and other Egyptologists. O'Connor (ancient Egyptian art and archaeology, New York U.) and Quirke (Egyptology, Institute of Archaeology, U. College London) present 11 papers exploring this scholarly conundrum and discussing Egyptian representations of foreign lands and peoples. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
