Riassunto: Egyptian faience is a hallmark of ancient Egypt culture and is probably known to everyone who has visited the Egyptian gallery of a museum. This book examines the technology of making this vitreous material and outlines its long history, which stretches from early Predynastic times to the end of the pharonic Egypt and beyond. The range of uses found for faience is examined and some of the reasons for its popularity discussed. The author then examines the related technology of glass making and working. Glass has a much shorter history, flourishing only in the New Kingdom before declining again, not to find popularity until much later times. Although glass was relatively rare, Egyptian glass makers were able to produce many masterpieces, and the making and development of these forms are described, along with the archaeological evidence for sites where glass or faience were made.

L'autore: Paul Nicholson studied Archaeology and Prehistory at the University of Sheffield, were he received his BA in 1981 and PhD in 1987. He has an established interest in the archaeology of Egypt and began working for the Egypt Exploration Society's Amarna expedition in 1983 and for their Memphis project in 1986. He has specialised in Egyptian crafts and technology, especially ceramics, and has led two ethnoarchaeological expeditions to study contemporary pottery making in Egypt.
