The ancient site of Abydos offers a tantalizing glimpse into ancient Egyptian history. Among the many incredible finds at the site include the graves of the earliest Egyptian kings, a cult center for the god Osiris, a fleet of the world’s earliest surviving boats, and the first signs of writing in Egypt. In his book Abydos: Egypt’s First Pharaohs and the Cult of Osiris (Thames & Hudson, 2009), David O’Connor offers new insights into this 4,000-year-old site, and discusses the origins of kingship in Egypt and the formation of the early state organization. O’Connor is a professor of Ancient Egyptian Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. (karenharris)
