Richard H. Wilkinson is Professor of Egyptian archaeology at the University of Arizona. Director of the University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition, which has conducted archaeological projects in Egypt's famed Valley of the Kings since 1989 and now excavating the memorial temple of Queen Tausert, he is the author of nearly one hundred articles and reviews as well as six books, most recently The Complete Temples of Egypt and The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt.
'Richard Wilkinson has pulled together an excellent introduction to the variety of approaches that are currently in use for understanding the world of ancient Egypt. While the public may generally equate Egyptology with archaeology (and more specifically with the discovery of 'exciting' finds), and while in the past an uncritical approach was privileged in Egyptology, the subject today takes advantage of the wide range of evidence that has survived.' Journal of the American Oriental Society
