The Lovereading4Kids comment
Egyptology is a fascinating guide to Ancient Egypt providing an exciting, narrative exploration of real – and not so real - subjects. Every page is crammed full of fascinating facts told in interesting and different ways. Open flaps, lift out facsimile documents, play a senet game, feel a swatch of mummy cloth, read stories, learn new alphabets – all of this is possible in this remarkable book, which will provide hours of endless fun for readers – adults and children alike - as well as providing a genuine source of information about an important part of history. Why not take a look at other Egyptology titles such as Wonders of Egypt: A course in Egyptology. Also available in the 'Ology' series are Dragonology, Pirateology, Monsterology, Wizardology, and Mythology.
Egyptology by Dugald Steer
A facinating guide to Ancient Egypt, told through the (fictional) journal of Emily Sands who, in 1926, led an expedition up the Nile to find the lost body of Osiris. On January 5th 1927, Emily Sands and her companions vanished without trace and were never seen again.
"The most enchanting history book of all, however, is Egyptology. Purporting to be the diaries of Miss Emily Sands, an archaeologist in 1926 it contains a mysterious curse, a game of senet, many glorious foldout surprises and much information. The burnished gold cover with its jewelled Horus enthrals children even before they open it and bring the past to life – which is of course what all history books should do, and rarely manage." - The Times
"A jewel of a book, covering everything a child could want to know about Ancient Egypt. This substantial hardback book is a fictional journal of an old woman’s trip to Egypt in November 1926. There are replica photos, postcards, tickets, maps, weather charts and so much more. The attention to detail is amazing and well worth the higher price tag." - Angels & Urchin
