The Ancient Egyptian Calendar followed the movements of the star Sothis (Sirius) as well as the sun. This book discusses how the Egyptians divided time, and then turns to a detailed examination of how Egyptian lunar calendars were tied by succeeding astronomers into the Julian Calendar, and thus into our own calendrical reckonings. The author suggests that a mistake in ancient calculations may mean a substantial error in our dating of the Middle Kingdom, meaning that it may be a much later period than commonly assumed.
