A tribute to the ongoing career of the W.J. Tait, Emeritus Professor of Egyptology at University College London.

A volume of essays by the friends, colleagues and students of Professor Tait, written in his honour. These cover a wide range of topics, from Middle Kingdom tomb-furnishings, through texts in a range of ancient languages to modern biography and the history of Egyptology, but in particular the Late, Hellenistic, and Roman Period studies that have been at the core of Professor Tait's distinguished Egyptological career.
