Egypt and Nubia by Renee F. Friedman
Book DescriptionThis volume originates in an international colloquium held in the British Museum in 1998. It comprises 18 papers, written by leading scholars, each of whom explores an aspect of the use and exploitation of the deserts lying to the east and west of the Nile Valley by the ancient Egyptians and their prehistoric ancestors. Exploding the myth that Egypt was simply the "Gift of the Nile", it aims to create an understanding of how the Egyptians perceived and exploited their wider environment.

One of the most common misconceptions about ancient Egypt is that there is little left to be discovered. Yet archaeologists are making new discoveries on a regular basis. This is the story of some of the major aspects of ancient Egypt, rewritten in light of discoveries made up to the late 1990s.
