This books covers the history of the Nile Valley from Nubia to the Mediterranean, during the period from the earliest hominid settlement, around 700,000 BC to the beginnings of dynastic Egypt at the end of the fourth millennium BC.

A bit too full of big words. Did not answer my questions either through words or artists' recreations of the PreDynastic world of Egypt before the Pharaohs that we know about officially.

...this is what you need. Covering Egypt from the landmass's geological foundation right up to the end of the predynastic era. It's been freshly updated by Ian Shaw to include all of the latest arguments, especially with respect to the Paleolithic and Predynastic periods. Most Egyptologists, amateur and otherwise, will only be interested in the last two or three chapters and, in fairness, each chapter uses the lingo of the relevant field, obfuscating it to the average reader. Nonetheless, I can't think of another book which rivals this one for what it offers.

The French edition of this book was published in 1992, and this version is both translated and updated. That makes it the most recent comprehensive, readable full-length book on the Predynastic. It's significantly shorter than its predecessor, Michael Hoffman's Egypt Before the Pharaohs from 1979, and largely leaves out some subjects that he covers.

Treatments of Egyptian prehistory tend to focus on the centuries before the beginning of the First Dynasty and treat the Paleolithic fairly briefly, as a prelude. Midant-Reynes seems interested in the Paleolithic in its own right, and she starts at the very beginning, with the first evidence of Oldowan and Acheulean tools in Egypt. Although that's laudable, the technical details of different lithic industries can get pretty boring. In fact, the book in general is dryly written compared to Hoffman. It helps when the book moves on to the transition to the Neolithic and discusses how that transition was more complex than archaeologists used to think. Her treatment of the Predynastic (a term she uses only for the Naqada cultures and their contemporaries) and the unification process treads more familiar ground. She focuses more on the hard evidence and the hypotheses about how unification happened than on abstract theories about the processes that drove it, whereas Hoffman discussed both. If you're having trouble absorbing the dry details through the rest of the book, its conclusion handily summarizes everything that has gone before in just four pages.

In scattered places elsewhere in the book, Midant-Reynes discusses population movements during Egyptian prehistory, something that Hoffman largely ignores. In the early and mid-20th century, Egyptologists thought that a "dynastic race" invaded Egypt from Mesopotamia, creating the Naqada culture and making unification possible. This notion is discredited today. Mesopotamian cultural influence was very real but was probably spread by diffusion. As Midant-Reynes points out, analyzing skeletons to determine the relationships between populations is a much more complex business than the "racial scientists" of the early 20th century thought it was. Yet linguistic differences hint that there may have been significant population movements in the Nile Valley during the Neolithic. The ancient Egyptians spoke an Afroasiatic language, distantly related to the Semitic languages and those of the Berbers. Their closest neighbors in Nubia spoke a very different language, one that may not have been Afroasiatic at all, even though Nubia and Upper Egypt were very culturally similar in Predynastic times. Tracing population movements based on linguistic relationships is a slippery business, but I would like to know what this linguistic difference might say about how people migrated or settled in Egypt during the Neolithic. Midant-Reynes only briefly touches on this topic, and other Egyptologists ignore it.

Before the Pyramids is a useful supplement to this book, because it's more reader-friendly and contains some more up-to-date details on the Predynastic. Early Dynastic Egypt tells what Egyptian society was like after it was unified.
