The present work, abbreviated here as RITA V, constitutes another highly anticipated and most welcome addition to Prof. Kitchen's series on translations of Ramesside inscriptions. (Lingua Aegyptia, May 2009)
K. A. Kitchen is a retired Professor of Egyptology in the University of Liverpool, where he taught for over 30 years. During that time, he worked extensively in Egypt, recording the texts for the hieroglyphic edition of Ramesside Inscriptions, I-VIII (Blackwell, 1969-1990), which is the basis for the Translations and Notes and Comments volumes now being issued. He has also produced a major book on Egyptian chronology for later Egypt (1100-650 BC), a classic popular 'Life and Times' of Ramesses II, and a comprehensive Catalogue of the notable Egyptian collection in Rio de Janeiro; other books on archaeology and the Bible; and the first of a series on Ancient (pre-Islamic) Arabia.
