Editorial Review
Religion of Ancient Egypt is a detailed and easy-to-read guide on the gods and beliefs in Egyptian mythology. First published in 1908, this educational book describes the types of gods and worship in Egyptian religion, the nature of gods and man, the concept of future life, private and ritual worship, cosmogony, and the influence of Egypt. An informative and descriptive guide, this book will intrigue anyone interested in ancient Egyptian gods and religion. SIR WILLIAM M. FLINDERS PETRIE (1853-1942) was a British Egyptologist who helped pioneer the systematic methodology in archaeology. Born in Charlton, Kent, England, Petrie had no formal education, but instead learned the art of excavation and surveying from his father. He began traveling and studying archaeology at a young age, hitting the high point of his career with the discovery of the Merneptah Stele in 1896. In addition to excavating at some of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt, including Naukratis, Tanis, and Abydos, he also held the first chair of Edwards Professor of Egyptian Archaeology and Philology at University College, England.
