EGYPTIAN MYTHOLOGY: A Traveler’s Guide from Aswan to Alexandria published by Thames & Hudson, a unique volume that offers a fresh look at the most well-known Egyptian myths.
Join Egyptologist/author Garry J. Shaw on an entertaining tour up the Nile, through a beautiful and fascinating landscape populated with a rich mythology: the stories of Horus, Isis, Osiris, and their enemies and allies in tales of vengeance, tragedy, and fantastic metamorphoses. Shaw retells these stories with his characteristic wit, and reconnects them to the temples and monuments that still stand today, offering a fresh look at the most visited sites of Egypt.
Taking readers on a memorable journey up the Nile, EGYPTIAN MYTHOLOGY stops at the country’s most famous monuments and retells the myths connected to each site. Illustrations throughout this fascinating book bring to life the creation of the world and the nebulous netherworld; the complicated relationships between fickle gods, powerful magicians, and pharaohs; and eternal battles on a cosmic scale.
Providing invaluable insights into the myths of Egypt that shaped its ancient landscape and the remnants still visible today, this compelling book will inform and entertain sightseers and armchair travelers alike.
