ABYDOS: Egypt's First Pharaohs and the Cult of Osiris
The ancient site of Abydos lies between the towering cliffs of the Egyptian high desert and the lush green floodplain of the Nile. As both the burial place of the first kings of Egypt and a cult center of Osiris, god of the dead, this sacred area has long tantalized archaeologists with incredible finds, as examined here. Well illustrated, many in color.
