Summary
Mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians - animals of all kinds were hugely important to the ancient Egyptians in their work, leisure and religious practices. In this lavishly illustrated book, Patrick Houlihan examines all aspects of the relationship between people and animals in ancient Egypt, and identifies the animals most commonly represented in art and hieroglyphs. Surveying more than three thousand years of Egyptian history, the author draws not only on the extremely rich pictorial record, but also on the evidence from textual references, mummified animals, food offerings placed in burials and bone remains recovered from settlement sites. Beautifully illustrated and comprehensive, The Animal World of the Pharaohs provides a valuable resource for all those with an interest in the lives of ancient Egyptians
