This book is about the weird and wonderful lesser-known ‘spirit’ entities of ancient Egypt, daemons, the mysterious and often fantastical creatures of the Egyptian ‘Otherworld’, and the closely related spirits of the dead. Few books deal accessibly with less familiar entities—daemons such as Ammut the Devourer, She Who Embraces, and the serpopard—which are here introduced to a new readership.

Review Quotes
Ellen Morris, Columbia University

“A devilishly good read intended for scholars and enthusiasts alike, Daemons and Spirits showcases the impressive holdings of the Egypt Centre. . . . It is beautifully illustrated and meticulously researched.”
