Professor of Egyptology and director of the Yale Egyptological Institute John C. Darnell delves into the history of Ancient Egypt from the Predynastic Period through the end of the New Kingdom. In these lectures, Professor Darnell shows that, despite common perceptions, Pharaonic Egyptian civilization existed within a multicultural society subject to disparate geological environments-and that its strength lay in the balancing of contrasting groups and goals.

    " Many of these Modern Scholars courses are fantastic. This one, unfortunately, is not. The lectures delve into incredible amounts of detail, burying the listener with names and places, but without giving a good sense of the big picture. The result is that you're lost in a fog of unfamiliar minutiae but without any of idea of what it's all supposed to mean. The lecturer also has the unfortunate habits of referring to people and terms long before they're actually defined in full, and of jumping around in chronology. Look elsewhere for an introduction to Egypt. "
