Front Cover
Aris & Phillips, 1986 - History - 608 pages
First published in 1972, this book remains the most comprehensive and reliable study of this complex epoch. By starting from first principles and classifying and surveying the main available evidence, Kitchen establishes a comprehensive full-scale chronology of the XXI-XXV dynasties. He is then able to present a compact historical outline of almost five centuries of Egyptian history that is invaluable for scholars and the general reader alike. This edition includes the 1986 supplement, and a second preface written in 1995 which takes into account research and discoveries since the previous edition.

About the author (1986)

K A Kitchen is currently Brunner Professor of Egyptology in the University of Liverpool, where he has taught for 38 years.

He has also produced a major book on Egyptian chronology for later Egypt (1100-650 BC), a classic popular "Life and Times" of Ramesses II, and a comprehensive Catalogue of the notable Egyptian collection in Rio de Janeiro; other books on archaeology and the Bible; and recently the first of a series on Ancient (pre-Islamic) Arabia, besides innumerable articles and reviews. He has lectured worldwide in these various spheres of enquiry.
