Synopsis

Ancient Egypt by Geraldine Harris

Ancient Egypt, New Edition presents a clear and engaging history of ancient Egyptian civilization. Maps are fully detailed and easy to use, and reconstructive drawings and stunning photographs of archaeological artifacts and ruins offer the reader copious information. The up-to-date and easily navigated atlas makes this book an accessible study tool. The atlas is divided into two sections: The History of the Pharaohs tells the story of Egypt from the unification of the country in about 2920 BCE to the coming of the Romans almost 3,000 years later. Sections discuss the power of the pharaoh, burial customs, the Egyptian army, and women in Egypt. A Journey Down the Nile describes the Egyptian landscape by following the course of the Nile River. Among the areas presented are Lower Nubia, Thebes, and Memphis. Ancient Egypt, New Edition is an exceptional guide for students eager to explore the history, culture, and geography of this important civilization.
