A spectacular and informative new guide to the fascinating story of Ancient Egypt in a revised paperback edition
A superb collection of specially commissioned photographs presents a detailed look at life in Ancient Egypt - from the pharaoh and his courtiers, through the mystical rites of the priests, to the world of the workers in the fields.
Featuring stunning items from the tomb of Tutankhamun and jewellery from the royal palaces, the book shows how Egyptian nobles lived. We learn how the Egyptians prepared for the afterlife, and see their mummies. The book also looks at the lives, rituals, and hieroglyphic writing of the priests and scribes, and photographs of food, clothes, weapons, and even toys reveal how ordinary Egyptians lived.
Produced in association with the British Museum, London, Ancient Egypt is a unique and compelling introduction to a remarkable civilization.
