    A Gift of Geology: Ancient Egyptian Landscapes and Monuments

    (An introduction to the geology of Egypt and its influence on ancient Egyptian culture)

    While much is known about Egypt's towering pyramids, mighty obelisks, and extraordinary works of art, less is known about the role played by Egypt's geological history in the formation of pharaonic culture's artistic and architectural legacy.

    In this engagingly written book, Colin Reader invites readers to explore the influence of geology and landscape on the development of the cultures of ancient Egypt.

    Ideal for non-specialists and specialists alike, and supported with over one hundred illustrations, A Gift of Geology takes the reader on a fascinating journey into Egypt's geological landscape and its relationship to the marvels of pharaonic culture.

    The book is now available to pre-order at Amazon.

    Herodotus said "Egypt was a gift of the Nile" but I'm trying to look a little deeper than that.
    Not only was the development of the Nile a function of geological processes, but the mineral wealth from which
    the Pharaonic culture benefited greatly was in my view, a key element of the development of  the ancient Egyptian state.
