Paul T. Nicholson, Ian Shaw, Cambridge University Press. Cambridge University Press, 23 mar 2000 - 702 pagine. This is a study of the procurement and processing of raw materials employed by the ancient Egyptians over the five millennia of the Predynastic and Pharaonic periods (c. 5500-332 BC). During this time, not only were there variations in the preferred materials for particular types of artefacts, but also gradual processes of technological change, and the industries of the Chalcolithic period were complemented and sometimes superseded by the innovations of the Bronze and Iron Ages.

Aimed primarily at Egyptologists and archaeologists, this book covers all aspects of craftwork in ancient Egypt, from the construction of the pyramids and the carving of statues to techniques of mummification, boat-building, jewelery making, ancient brewing, carpentry, hairstyling, tailoring and basket weaving. Drawing on archaeological, experimental, ethnographic and laboratory work, it is the first book since the 1920s to describe current research into the actual basics of life in Pharaonic Egypt. The twenty-five chapters, by well-regarded scholars, present up-to-date and accessible information on a wide array of techniques.
Reviews about Ancient Egyptian Materials and Technology (5):
Marad
It is an excellent book, covering a broad range of topics. Although some sections are now dated, the numerous citations allow for a more in-depth research.
Golden Lama
Great book, accurate information, update of Lucas.
Otiel
The most useful book in existence for anybody interested in Ancient Egyptian artefacts. Also incredibly useful for conservators and archaeological scientists in museums and in the field.
Winail
A much awaited book, this is the latest comprehensive study of Ancient Egyptian materials, offering essays on subjects such as stone, metals, faience, glass, papyrus, textiles, leather, ivory, wood, oil, resins and food, and covering from the Predynastic to the Ptolemaic periods. Every chapter, which includes extensive bibliographical references, was written either by an Egyptologist or by a specialist of the subject; contributors include Janine Bourriau, Rosalie David, Joann Fletcher, Nigel Hepper, Salima Ikram, Barry Kemp, Geoffrey Killen, Paul T. Nicholson, Stephen Quirke, Ian Shaw and John Tait. Full illustrated, it also clearly explains the techniques used in the identification of materials. This is an excellent reference for every student and scholar of Egyptology.
Dondallon
This is an academic reference book, designed for a library shelf. It is a little bigger than its 702 pages would suggest, because it is printed on thick glossy paper in quite a good printing quality. The illustrations are in a style reminiscent of years long gone by (all B&W).
The chapter on wood consists of two sections. The first contains descriptions of some thirty trees: fairly elaborate botanical description, brief characterization of wood type, a few words on the use made of the wood and a listing of archaeological finds. For the anatomical description the reader is referred to a work that (finally) appeared as "Plants in Archaeology". It is obvious that not much research has been done on the wood in Ancient Egyptian objects. The second section deals with the technology (joints) and tools used by the Egyptians: a much more limited topic and one lending itself well to an overview.
