Reading List

Must Read.
This is required book for those enrolled in the summer credit class for the University of Hawaii and recommended for everyone. Bagnal, Roger S. 1993 Egypt in Late Antiquity. Princeton University Press, Princeton. This book brings together a vast amount of information pertaining to the society, economy, and culture of a province important to understanding the entire eastern part of the later Roman Empire. Focusing on Egypt from the accession of Diocletian in 284 to the middle of the fifth century, Roger Bagnall draws his evidence mainly from documentary and archaeological sources, including the papyri that have been published over the last thirty years.







Bowman’s book is not quite as useful from an archaeological /Anthropological point of view, and also not as much fun to read; however, the excerpts from papyri from Oxyrynchus and other caches of documents give precious incites into the lives, relations, and business of the literate classes in Egypt. Bowman, Alan K. 1986 Egypt after the Pharaohs: 332 BC- AD 642, from Alexander to the Arab Conquest, University of California Press, Berkeley.
