Description: The majesty & splendor of ancient Egypt were largely the result of the remarkably advanced technological skills developed by its artisans & craftsmen. This fascinating, comprehensive & detailed study of ancient Egyptian technology meticulously describes the extent to which these workers & other Egyptians developed & utilized the land's vast resources. First published in 1926 & later revised & enlarged, this monumental work has become a standard reference, unparalleled in any other branch of archaeology. Among the subjects examined in the thoroughly documented text are the wealth of materials & processes that were an integral part of Egyptian daily life: the use of animal products, building materials, cosmetics, perfumes & incense; fibers, glazed ware, glass & its manufacture; metals & alloys, painting materials, pottery making, woodworking, precious & semi-precious stones; distillation of alcoholic beverages, materials used in the mummification process, & much more. Enormously erudite, with an abundance of detailed information, Ancient Egyptian Materials & Industries is an essential reference, invaluable to students of Egyptology & classical civilizations & of vital interest to anyone intrigued by the long & remarkable history of technological development. Preface. List of Abbreviations. Chronological Table. Appendix. Index.
