  • Eternal Egypt offers readers a useful chronological overview of Egyptian history. All the different periods are covered, from prehistory to the revolution of 2011, from the discovery of flint toolmaking to the building of the pyramids, from the pharaonic dynasties to the Roman conquest with the ‘showbiz couple’ Caesar and Cleopatra. Attention is also paid to the Copts and to Islamic Egypt. The history of Egypt has always been intriguing, and in Europe led to ‘Egyptomania’. In the second half of the 19th century, archaeological research in Egypt really got under way. Egyptology took flight at the same time, culminating in the interesting archaeological research being conducted today. Eternal Egypt describes recent Dutch and Belgian excavations in Egypt. The accompanying photos show contemporary archaeology in action, and readers can peek over the shoulders of the archaeologists and experience the historical sensation of excavating in Egypt at first hand.

    Eternal Egypt pays special attention to important topics such as religion, kingship, language and material culture. The many illustrations of objects from the collection of the Allard Pierson Museum in Amsterdam, and of the landscape and monuments of Egypt itself, tell their own story. This book is an ideal introduction for those who want to know more about Egypt and its inhabitants, and also a practical historical guide for travellers to the banks of the Nile. Eternal Egypt is the new handbook for everyone interested in the centuries-old history of Egypt.
