9780415404877: Karnak: Evolution of a Temple

The first publication in English, this book fills a gap in the market and presents an in-depth examination of the significant temple site at Karnak. It is visited by thousands of tourists each year and is one of the most famous ancient temples in the world. Up until now there has been no single publication that covers the historical developments from its early shrine of an obscure local deity to the greatest state temple of ancient Egypt’s mighty empire. 

Karnak includes an array of illustrations, maps, plans and photographs and entails some of the most illustrious names associated with Ancient Egypt:-

  • Hatshepsut
  • Tuthmosis III
  • Amenhotep III
  • Akhenaten
  • Tutankhamun
  • Ramessess II.

Karnak delivers an outline of the entire history of Ancient Egypt and will prove to be a crucial guide for those involved in Egyptology, Archaeology and Ancient History.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Blyth, formerly of the Department of Egyptology, University College of London.

Review:

'This rich story is told in exemplary fashion, ably backed by maps, plans, and appropriate illustrations' - Minerva

'I cannot be too enthusiastic about this volume. Incorporating the latest research on the temple, the author provides a wealth of information that will enhance any visit to the temple... Do buy this book... if you have visited the temple and know it well, you will gain a better understanding of it, and if you are about to visit, the book will give you an excellent and comprehensive introduction to the complex and amazing site.' - Ancient Egypt

"A complement to the archaeological excavations that must necessarily focus on the careful and extremely detailed study of small areas, this overview of the entire temple, beside being interesting and important on its own, may also provide the basis for future studies on its general layout, distribution and internal organization." Corinna Rossi, Collegio di Milano
