We used this text in my university Egyptology courses back in the day. Though it is dated in some respects, due to new discoveries, and the author sees some aspects of Egyptian life through the lens of his own faith, it is still the most readable overview of Ancient Egypt I've ever come across. Wilson could have taught prose writing as authoritatively as he did Egyptology. It is a very good read and has held up extremely well. I read it then for information, I reread it now for pleasure.
