Chapter Summary

This chapter suggests reasons why Egypt, in its last great period of essentially domestic rule, did succeed in retrieving much of its ancient purpose and consequent achievement. The thread runs right through from the 25th Dynasty, by way of the stable, although often politically inept, 26th Dynasty, to the foreign-dominated time of the 27th Dynasty, to the last years of native rule. The thread runs right through from the 25th Dynasty, by way of the stable, although often politically inept, 26th Dynasty, to the foreign-dominated time of the 27th Dynasty, to the last years of native rule. The changes that took place in Egypt subsequent to Alexander's conquest are much more clearly distinguishable in artistic, cultural, and political terms, than those of the Late Period. They are entirely understandable in the context of the radical change in the kind of royal house that had then assumed authority.
