Jaroslav Černý is considered to be one of the most famous Czech Egyptologists. He was born in 1898. During his early life Černý showed interest in ancient Egypt and the field of Egyptology. Because of the financial situation of the family, Černý had to find a job, while he was still at the university; therefore he worked at the beginning of his career in a bank. Since 1924 Jaroslav Černý began his relation with Egypt, where he participated in the excavations of the Institut français d’Archéologie orientale (IFAO) at Deir el-Medina site, in the west bank of Luxor.
This biographical work is introducing the personal and professional life of Černý, presenting his life stages in his country of origin, and his effective role in the field of Egyptology, the significance of his participation in excavations of Deir el-Medina, then his emigration to England in 1946. In addition, this work presents Černý’s friendships with his colleagues in the field of Egyptology in the Czech, Egypt, England, and also his relationships with scientists from France and other countries.
This biography was first published in Czech and English on the 40th occasion of Jaroslav Černý’s death, to thank him for all what he did for the Czech Institute of Egyptology, even after he left his homeland to England. Černý helped his country in different ways, for instance, he donated to Charles University his rich library, which is full of numerous rare books and scientific references; as well as through ongoing advice to the directors of the Czech Institute. He was the first to advise them to start their field activities at the site of Abusir, the area that has seen the discoveries and the achievements of the Czech Institute of Egyptology for more than 50 years.

رحلة إلى الخلود: مقابر الأفراد بادولة القديمة. ميروسلاف بارتا

Miroslav Bárta: Journey to the West: The world of the Old Kingdom tombs.
Prague: Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Arts. 2013.

This book is intended as a commented summary of some of the major trends and most important features that can be encountered when analysing ancient Egyptian society of the Old Kingdom. We have to bear in mind that around 3000 BCE one of the first centralised states in our recorded history rose, and the Old Kingdom represents certainly one of its apogees. Moreover, there is hardly any comparable society that left behind such a wealth of archaeological and literary evidence, a welcome companion for our journey back in time.
The goal for writing this book was to outline general trends in the history of the non-royal tomb development of the period. The reason is rather simple and straightforward: ancient Egyptians considered the tomb to be their afterlife residence for eternity. In the afterlife they replicated the life they experienced during the lifetime. Thus the tomb architecture, decoration, inscriptions and equipment paradoxically represent a major tool for our understanding of the everyday life of the ancient Egyptians and enable a better comprehension of the development and dynamics of the Old Kingdom.
The book is divided into nine chapters covering, step by step, the development of the Egyptian tomb and society from the Predynastic Period to the end of the first six Egyptian dynasties, a lengthy period of time which covers the Early Dynastic and the Old Kingdom periods. These six chapters are accompanied by three additional chapters on religious aspects of the Old Kingdom society, its economy and environment. 342p

Hana Vymazalová, Mohamed Megahed, František Ondráš (eds.): Ancient Echoes in the Culture of Modern Egypt.
Prague: Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Arts, 2011.

The book presents selected aspects of the legacy that ancient Egypt left on the culture of Coptic, Islamic and modern Egypt. Ancient origin can be traced in numerous different sources and thus the papers in the volume approach the subject from different perspectives. Many connections can be found in the Egyptian traditions in general, as well as in certain specific practices. Inspiration by the ancient times is also very apparent in literature and art. Format B5, 244 pages, paperback. Text in English and Arabic.
