About this product
- DescriptionThe volume provides a detailed catalogue of 127 stelae (many funerary) deriving from the Nile Valley, w part of the Egyptian collection in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. The stelae are written in various scripts - Egyptian hieroglyphic, hieratic and demotic, Carian, Greek, Coptic and early Arabic - and cover a date-range of over 4000 years. Few museums have published their complete holdings of such material, and the carefully described and translated information from these stelae throws a flood of light on the history, religion, funerary customs, art and icography, daily life and administrative systems of ancient Egypt and Nubia. Each entry has a photograph of the stela as well as a meticulous line-drawing which enables the texts and icography to be understood and interpreted. Full museological details such as material, precise measurements, provenance (where kwn), mode of acquisition and dating are provided. The volume will interest specialists as well as a wider public concerned with Egyptology.
