Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors provide detailed and accurate information about life in the city. This is an excellent, recommended, must-read book for all."—Frankie's Reviews in Egyptology

"The authors bring together their extensive collective knowledge and experience with both ancient Waset (Thebes) and modern Luxor to create in this volume what qualifies as the best comprehensive general study to date of arguably the single most important site in all of Egypt, archeologically speaking. . . This is a work that should not go ignored."—KMT, Winter 1999-2000.

"Nigel and Helen Strudwick have provided the first comprehensive treatment of the most important archaeological site in Egypt. No other location, with the possible exception of Saqqara, has yielded material from all the major epochs of Egyptian history. Clearly written and well organized, the book presents valuable new information about its subject."—James F. Romano, Brooklyn Museum of Art
