While archaeologists excavate the remains of pyramids, temples, and tombs, scholars at museums, universities, and other institutions are also furthering the understanding of ancient Egyptian culture through their study of the artifacts contained in the worlds Egyptian galleries.

To celebrate the centennial of the Egyptian Museum, which opened its doors in 1902, museum directors and Egyptologists were invited to contribute accounts of Egyptian collections or studies of Egyptian artifacts around the world. The result is an impressive array of scholarship--in all, 130 studies in English, French, German, and Arabic describing collections from Argentina to South Africa, from the Netherlands to Jordan, and dealing with predynastic palettes and Ptolemaic coins, Meroitic anklets and hieratic ostraca, stelae and linen, scarabs and wigs.
