This two-volume work is a comprehensive collection of the pictorial sources for sport in Pharaonic Egypt. Adopting a broad definition of sport, its scope embraces relevant cultic scenes as well as archery, charioteering and horsemanship, hunting, wrestling, open-air games and board games, acrobatics, dancing and water sports.
Over 2,000 documents are given detailed descriptions, with systematic annotations relating to the place, date and content of the documents, as well as the most important secondary literature. The hieroglyphic captions are given in transcription and translation. A representative selection of the pictorial documents, accounting for approximately half of the total material, is presented in the illustrated volume. Accompanying maps classify the material by subject area with indications of their topographical distribution and chronological proximity.
The publication of this corpus of materials makes available for the first time the complete pictorial tradition of a great, ancient sporting culture, the intention being to stimulate and intensify research in these fields by the provision of the basic materials.

'The plates are beautiful and the catalogue commentary highly informative. Together they make reading the "pictures" of their culture left us by ancient Egyptian artists and craftsmen easy.'
A.F., Old Testament Abstracts, 1994.
'...this vast, well-illustrated repertoire will be a valuable reference-work for anyone studying sport and games in the biblical world.'
K.A. Kitchen, Society for Old Testament Study, 1995.
