Reads like fiction. Full of facts, dates, names and historic events, yet so well written that it feels like reading a suspense/mystery novel.

Obviously it's impossible to cover thousands of years of history and archaeology in 400 pages, so this book is a great overview of the highlights, and manages to connect the dots between historic events and present day archaeological status.

One of the best-written books on Ancient Egypt I have ever read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0759124019, Hardcover)

The Archaeology Hotspots series offers reader-friendly and engaging narratives of the archaeology in particular countries. Written by archaeological experts with a general reader in mind, each book in the series focuses on what has been found and by whom, what the controversies and scandals have been, ongoing projects, and how it all fits into a broader view of the history of the country.

In
Archaeology Hotspot Egypt, scholar Julian Heath provides a chronological overview beginning with handaxes left by Homo erectus during the Lower Paleolithic and moving onwards through pharaonic Egypt to finish in the Greco-Roman period. He covers the most interesting finds—including Tutankhamen’s tomb and the Rosetta Stone—and profiles major personalities, past and present. Current digs and recent insights on the past are also covered, such as the massive tomb of KV5 and how contemporary scientific techniques are unearthing new information about ancient Egyptian people and animals. The result is an illuminating look at the history, culture, national heritage, and current archaeological news of Egypt—a hotspot of archaeology.
