    This volume provides a detailed catalogue of 127 stelae (many funerary) deriving from the Nile Valley and now part of the Fitzwilliam's Egyptian collection. Written in various scripts and ranging chronologically over more than 4,000 years, the stelae are presented here in photographs and meticulous line drawings which enable the texts and iconography to be understood and interpreted; and with translations of the texts which illuminate the history, religion, funerary customs, daily life and administrative systems of ancient Egypt and Nubia.
