'Man perishes; his corpse turns to dust; all his relatives pass away. But writings make him remembered.' The fascination Ancient Egypt holds in our minds has many sources, but at the heart of it lie hieroglyphics. This extraordinary writing system was for many years seen as the ultimate challenge and puzzle before finally being cracked in the 1820s. Preserved carved in stone or inked on papyri, hieroglyphic writings give a unique insight into an awe-inspiring but also deeply mysterious culture. Toby Wilkinson has translated a rich selection of pieces, ranging from accounts of battles to hymns to stories to royal proclamations. This book is both very enjoyable and an essential resource for anyone wanting to study one of humankind's great civilizations.

An investigation is made here of a marking and counting system used in Ancient Egypt similar to the one existing in Mesopotamia, during the fourth millennium BCE. Th e archaeological model indicates that, this development was crucial to the invention of writing and to social stratifi cation in both Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. Th is fact was corroborated by archaeological analysis of the areas, indicating a very early state formation at the beginning of the Middle Uruk Period in Mesopotamia, which corresponded to the Predynastic Period in Egypt. A correlation is made here of proto-signs from both areas, Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt, which was probably used for longrange trade between both regions.

In ancient Egypt the strategy to achieve life after death relied on hieroglyphs, which united art and writing to help fulfil this ambition. This lavishly illustrated book tells the history of the texts that, through 3,000 years, were designed to ensure survival after death. Egyptologist Stephen Quirke sets out the history of the texts designed to guarantee life beyond death, from the Pyramid Texts for kings and queens, c.2400 BC, to the Book of the Dead used by king and subject alike after 1600 BC. The literature that flourished for millennia met its end under the combined pressures of Greek-speaking government, Roman occupation, and conversion to Christianity. Although Books of the Dead and other funerary manuscripts form the great bulk of surviving Pharaonic texts, no up-to-date survey of this material has been available to a general or scholarly readership. This book, based on a concept by Werner Forman, aims to fill that gap.
