Echoes of Egypt free pdf Echoes of Egypt is a catalogue accompanying an exhibit at Yale's Peabody Museum of Natural History. Edited by Colleen Manassa, the catalogue also includes entries by international experts.

The first chapter includes a chronological overview of the exhibit, ranging from ancient Meroe, Greece and Rome, and medieval Arab-Islamic fascination with hieroglyphs to Piranesi's interior designs and the impact of Napoleon's invasion. Additional chapters focus on the meaning and changing uses of hieroglyphs, 'mummy mania' and Egyptosophy. Full colour images complement the text.
