9780521543743: The Archaeology of Early Egypt: Social Transformations in North-East Africa, c.10,000 to 2,650 BC (Cambridge World Archaeology)

In this authoritative survey of the archaeology of early Egypt, David Wengrow offers a new interpretation of the emergence of farming economies and the dynastic state, c.10,000 to 2,650 BC. Exploring key themes such as the nature of state power, kingship and the inception of writing, Wengrow illuminates prehistoric social development along the Nile through comparison with neighboring regions. Employing rich empirical data and engaging critically with anthropological theory and the history of archaeological thought, Wengrow's work challenges the current theoretical isolation of Egyptian prehistory.

Book Description:

In The Archaeology of Early Egypt, David Wengrow provides a new interpretation of the emergence of farming economies and the dynastic state (c. 10,000SH2650 BC). Comparison with neighbouring regions brings the dynamics of prehistoric social development along the Nile into focus, while detailed analysis of the archaeological record reveals the interplay between large-scale processes of economic and political change, and the intimate material practices through which social identities were transformed. His conclusions extend beyond Egypt to consider the relationship between bureaucracy, sacrifice and the nature of state power.

About the Author:

David Wengrow is a Lecturer at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London, where he has established a new program of study comparing ancient societies of the Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean.
