Anyone who has ever visited the monuments of ancient Egypt or studied its art, must have been struck by the many different bird species that are to be seen. This gives some indication of the importance of birds in the life of ancient Egypt and yet the topic has never been thoroughly investigated. The aim of this book is to put that right and provide a systematic survey of all the species represented in ancient Egyptian art and hieroglyphs. In addition the birds' role in secular and religious life is examined and an attempt is made to compare present day range with that of antiquity.For bird enthusiasts, the authors, using the most up-to-date knowledge provide an accurate and concise list of modern Egyptian birds, with Arabic names.Profusely illustrated and carefully researched, this book should become a standard work both for Egyptology and ornithology alike.
