Chapter Summary

For all who knew him, Bill Murnane's unexpected death in 2000 came as both a great shock and a double tragedy. Even when engrossed in his fieldwork for the Epigraphic Survey and later for his own Karnak Hypostyle Hall Project, Bill was never too busy to answer questions posed by tourists, responding in Arabic, English, French, German or Spanish depending on the questioner's native tongue. Bill's knowledge of Egyptology was encyclopedic. Among Bill Murnane's most appealing scholarly qualities were his rigorous approach to the evidence and his open mindedness. Bill Murnane was one of the foremost experts on the Amarna Period, as reflected in books and articles published throughout his career. The chapters in this volume reflect Bill Murnane's wide variety of interests, especially historical and epigraphic issues.
