Morkot contributed to the 1991 book Centuries of Darkness, edited by Peter James. The book, questioning the conventional Egyptian chronology, caused a stir in the academic community and beyond; its thesis remains controversial.
In addition to his academic work, Morkot has written a number of books on Egypt aimed at the general public.
