Dr Carola Vogel received her PhD in Egyptology from the Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz. She has a strong background in ancient Egyptian military history and is publishing and lecturing extensively in this field. Her dissertation on Egyptian fortresses and garrisons up to the Middle Kingdom was awarded with the third prize of the renowned Werner von Hahlweg Prize in 2000.
"Dr. Vogel has produced a highly readable and interesting work based on the remaining evidence... The reconstructions are excellent with maps indicating the locations of the sites. The author explains, based on remaining evidence and some of her own conclusions, what life was like for the garrisons." --JE Kaufmann, SITE O "... most archaeologists give [ancient fortifications] ... little attention unless there is something really impressive remaining to work with. Dr. Vogel has produced a highly readable and interesting work based on the remaining evidence." --J.E. Kaufmann, SITE O
