ARH 211


OneSearch is the best place to go for research for this assignment.  Keep in mind that a lot of the best sources will be chapters (or even just a few pages) in books.

Search Terms Ideas

Start with Ancient Egypt, then try some of the following:

  • food
  • cooking
  • diet
  • life
  • agriculture or farming
  • names of specific ingredients in your recipe (hit or miss)


Books on Reserve

I've ordered two books on Ancient Egyptian food/cooking/recipes.  Once they arrive they will be on reserve.  You will be able to use the instructor look up to find the numbers:

Call numbers for print books:

Ancient Egyptian history and life:  3rd floor, 932

Ancient Egyptian art and architecture:  5th floor, 709.32


If you are looking for images outside of ARTstor or books, try to find ones that are hosted by a museum.  They are much more likely to have a correct description and time period.
