David O'Connor avec Abydos Egypt's first pharaos and the cult of osiris (paperback) /anglais

Abydos is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic sites in southern Egypt. As both the burial place of the first pharaohs and a cult centre for the god Osiris, it was of immense importance to the ancient Egyptians for thousands of years, from nearly 3000 BC until the early centuries ad, and continues to yield spectacular discoveries. In this volume, David OConnor, the worlds greatest authority on Abydos, provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive account of the site's extraordinary history and tells the story of his own excavations there. This book will be of interest both to students and to anyone who ever has wondered about the origins of one of the greatest civilizations in world history.
