It's the Oxford book on Ancient Egypt. Cost about 20 bucks at my local store.

Here it is:

Hey, please let us know what you think about this one, EpicOfMan. I'd really appreciate it. I've been building on my collection of reference books and have considered this same one, but haven't taken the plunge yet.

As long as I'm on this subject, for a good reference book I'd have to recommend The Dictionary of Ancient Egypt. It's amazing how much information they've crammed into this little book. Wink

I really like the following book:
The Complete Royal Families of Ancient Egypt: A Genealogical Sourcebook of the Pharaohs by Aidan Dodson, Dyan Hilton

It's on sale at amazon.com Very Happy
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0500051283/qid=1136223877/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-8121695-9108135?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

This book gives info about the royal families of egypt.

For more info about events during the reigns of the monarchs I really like the Ancient records series by Breasted.
They are fairly old (1906/1907), but they have stood the test of time rather well I think.
They contain translations of inscriptions from the different time periods.
Those are quite interesting to read.

Here's the book for the 18th dynasty for instance:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0252069749/qid=1136224298/sr=1-4/ref=sr_1_4/102-8121695-9108135?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

Volume 1 discusses the First through the Seventeenth Dynasties;
Volume 2, the Eighteenth Dynasty;
Volume 3, the Nineteenth Dynasty;
Volume 4, the Twentieth through Twenty-Sixth Dynasties.
Volume 5 contains supplementary bibliographies and indices for the previous volumes;

I have volumes 1,2 and 3 and really like them.

Hi anneke, thanks for your help, the first book you mentioned seems ideal, I seem to be going through a phase of learning more about Egypts rulers, in fact just reading the posts on this forum has been very useful. Very Happy paul
