Description

Sir E. A. Wallis Budge (1857-1934) was Keeper of the British Museum's department of oriental antiquities from 1894 until his retirement in 1924. Carrying out many missions to Egypt in search of ancient objects, Budge was hugely successful in collecting papyri, statues and other artefacts for the trustees of the British Museum: numbering into the thousands and of great cultural and historical significance. Budge published well over 100 monographs, which shaped the development of future scholarship and are still of great academic value today, dealing with subjects such as Egyptian religion, history and literature. This volume, first published in 1902, is the third of eight volumes by Budge dealing with different periods in the history of Egypt. The narrative continues from the end of the reign of Seankh-ka-Ra (c. 2500 B.C.), the last king of the XIth Dynasty, to the end of the reign of Thothmes II (c.1550 B.C.). Budge explores this rich and important period of Egyptian history in a classic work of great value to those interested in Egyptology and archaeology.
