Search: Ancient Near East and Egypt - Egyptology, 2006
Edited by Erik Hornung, Rolf Krauss, and David A. Warburton
This volume, the only up-to-date study of its kind in any language, reviews the foundations of Ancient Egyptian chronology before presenting a relative and an absolute chronology for the time span from prehistoric times until the Hellenistic Period.
In his new book, Jean Winand deals with the expression of time and aspect in ancient Egyptian. He presents a challenging new theoretical paradigm within a semantic approach.
