Egyptian Museum Collections Around the World by Mamdouh Eldamaty
Book DescriptionThe Egyptian Museum in Cairo is the greatest treasure-house of ancient Egyptian art there is, but major museums - and many smaller museums - in other countries throughout the world also boast fine Egyptian collections. While archaeologists excavate the remains of pyramids, temples, and tombs, scholars at museums, universities, and other institutions are also furthering the understanding of ancient Egyptian culture through their study of the artifacts contained in the world's Egyptian galleries. To celebrate the centennial of the Egyptian Museum, which opened its doors in 1902, museum directors and Egyptologists were invited to contribute accounts of Egyptian collections or studies of Egyptian artifacts around the world. The result is an impressive array of scholarship - in all, 130 studies in English, French, German, and Arabic describing collections from Argentina to South Africa, from the Netherlands to Jordan, and dealing with predynastic palettes and Ptolemaic coins, Meroitic anklets and hieratic ostraca, stelae and linen, scarabs and wigs. The two volumes that make up Egyptian Museum Collections around the World will be an essential addition to any Egyptological library.
