Description - Egypt and Nubia by Renee F. Friedman

This 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.
