About the Authors
  • A History of World Egyptology is a ground-breaking reference work that traces the study of ancient Egypt over the past 150 years. Global in purview, it enlarges our understanding of how and why people have looked, and continue to look, into humankind's distant past through the lens of the enduring allure of ancient Egypt. Written by an international team of scholars, the volume investigates how territories around the world have engaged with, and have been inspired by, ancient Egypt and its study, and how that engagement has evolved over time. Chapters present a specific territory from different perspectives, including institutional and national, while examining a range of transnational links as well. The volume thus touches on multiple strands of scholarship, embracing not only Egyptology, but also social history, the history of science and reception studies. It will appeal to amateurs and professionals with an interest in the histories of Egypt, archaeology and science.

    • Provides a holistic study of the study of ancient Egypt
    • Gives individual territories involved with Egyptology's development their own voice
    • Includes socio-cultural in addition to academic interactions with ancient Egypt

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘It is both immensely detailed and generally accessible …’ Andrew Robinson, Nature

    ‘While other (both more narrative, but also overtly critical) histories of the discipline have appeared recently, for breadth and detail of coverage this sizeable volume is difficult to rival.’ Ancient Egypt Magazine

    ‘This highly readable volume is an indispensable resource for every library … Highly recommended.’ C. C. Mattusch, Choice Magazine

    ‘… for breadth and detail of coverage, this sizeable volume is difficult to rival … [it] marks something of a landmark to marshal this material into one relatively easy-to-use source. An extensive bibliography and index are genuinely helpful.’ Campbell Price, Ancient Egypt Magazine
