    Famous in ancient times for its temple of the god Osiris, Abydos is one of Egypt's most important archaeological sites. David O'Connor brings four decades' experience of excavation at Abydos to his account of the myth and cult of Osiris, the history of the site's archaeological investigation and the ways in which this vast complex of tombs, temples and towns can help to explain patterns of ritual, urban and economic activity across ancient Egypt.
