This authoritative, accessible book by a freelance lecturer in Egyptology provides a comprehensive and compelling introduction to the world of ancient Egyptian women, who seem to have enjoyed a much more equal role in society than their sisters in other parts of the ancient world. Watterson’s interdisciplinary survey encompasses a wide range of evidence, from written sources and tomb paintings to artefacts and human remains. A satisfying and well-rounded account, with 35 beautiful photographs.
