Summary: Summarizes and Illustrates discoveries
After a decade of work and many visits to Egypt and Europe to photograph and study ancient Egyptian symbols, Jonathan Meader and Barbara Demeter have just completed documenting their discoveries in book form.
In it they identify the sources and meanings of more than 50 ancient Egyptian symbols, including 10 major crowns, god Seth and his mysterious head, and the Eye of Horus, perhaps ancient Egypt's most significant symbol. Many of these symbols are key to the understanding of ancient Egypt.
"This truly remarkable publication challenges the world of Egyptology to reassess long-held and clearly incorrect theories about the origin and meaning of so many symbols and representational forms which are fundamental to our understanding of ancient Egypt."
Carol Andrews, Amulets of Ancient Egypt • 27 years at the British Museum's Egyptology department •
"Innovative and thought-provoking, with some important contributions to Egyptology."
