By means of technical examination of the gold objects now part of the renowned and outstanding Egyptian collection of the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, this book gives a unique and innovatory insight in the work of the ancient Egyptian goldsmith. In 1922 the world came face to face with a young pharaoh: in that year the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered and his breathtaking gold mask became known to everybody. Ancient Egyptian gold is known to all of us. But what was the significance of gold in Ancient Egyptian society? Where was it found and how was it won? And where did the Ancient Egyptian goldsmith work and what techniques did he master? The first part of this book answers the questions mentioned above. The second part is a catalogue of gold objects which are part of the renowned and outstanding collection of the Egyptian Department of the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden. By means of a technical examination of these objects, this book gives a unique and innovatory insight in the work of the ancient Egyptian goldsmith, who was able to accomplish true work of art though working in hot and basic circumstances. ? Mariëlle Bulsink (1968) studied archaeology and Egyptology at Leiden University. In 1992 she finished her studies, writing a thesis on the technical research of the gold objects in the collection of the Egyptian Department of the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden. In the following years this study was prepared for publishing. During this process she was guest researcher at the museum and took a course in metalworking under the guidance of a goldsmith to experience firsthand the ins and outs of the trade. Currently she is doing voluntary work at the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden.
