This illustrated book explores the roles and status of women and the wider subject of gender in ancient Egypt using Egyptian artifacts from the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology that range in date from prehistory to Late Antiquity, with an emphasis on Graeco-Roman Egypt. The importance of women and the complex roles of gender in Egyptian society, religion and culture are examined in a series of essays that raise provocative questions while presenting previously unpublished artifacts. 103p, illus.
