City of the Ram-Man:
The Story of Ancient Mendes
Donald B. Redford

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Donald Redford's City of the Ram-Man will interest specialists and armchair archaeologists alike. Redford looks at even the most complex archaeological and historical data with the eye of a storyteller. He constantly weaves interesting and often little-known details into the warp of his story, and his work is a rare thing--a consummate fusion of solid scholarship and truly readable history."--Richard H. Wilkinson, author of The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt

"This interesting and engaging book shows how one major archaeological field project--the excavations at Mendes--illuminates nearly the entire sweep of ancient Egyptian history. One of the major Egyptologists of his generation, Donald Redford is a giant, and this book plays on a giant stage. It is also a great read."--John S. Holladay Jr., professor emeritus, University of Toronto
