Description:

Among ancient civilizations, Egypt was one of the most evolved and is probably now the best known, thanks to a continuing fascination with mummies, pyramids, and mysterious sphinxes. This beautifully-designed pocket reference presents ancient Egypt in stunningly produced photographs and concise textual descriptions that feature art, culture, and government. The richly illustrated and easy-to-use volume presents a vivid picture of everyday life in Egypt during the Old, Middle, and New Kingdoms. It offers an exhaustive view of the civilization as a whole, including a fascinating section on the history of Egyptology, the invasions and excavations, and a section on where the artifacts can be seen today. This is a must-have addition to the library of anyone interested in ancient Egypt, and a necessary companion for the traveler.
