The Ancient Egyptians Their Lives and Their World by Angela McDonald


The Ancient Egyptians Their Lives and Their World by Angela McDonald

The Ancient Egyptians allows children to meet at close quarters the people of ancient Egypt. This is a highly visual resource book, packed with authentic pictures, that shows at first hand how the Egyptians lived and worked and how they wished to be remembered by later generations. The book contains a wealth of fascinating images from the British Museums world-renowned Egyptian collections, showing the people of ancient Egypt and the objects they made and used. The text offers supporting information, descriptions and explanations alongside the images, encouraging children to engage with the photographs in detail. A special feature is the quotations from ancient Egyptian sources ranging from royal decrees to personal letters that allow children to read about the Egyptians in their own words. A fascinating way to explore the daily lives of people in the past, through a close look at the objects and artwork they left behind.
