Description

The Egyptians' massive stone monuments were built over a period of three millennia and yet a common architectural tradition links them all. This book documents that tradition and provides a single-volume reference on one of the most remarkable architectures of the ancient world. Separate entries are provided for each of the most important sites, covering monuments as diverse as the Step Pyramid of Djoser, the tombs of the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut's mortuary temple at Deir el-Bahri and the great Ptolemaic temples that line the Upper Nile. With more than 600 entries and 350 illustrations, this encyclopaedia provides a comprehensive perspective on ancient Egyptian architecture.
