British Museum: Secret Treasures of Ancient Egypt: Discover the Sunken Cities by Esther Aarts

Coinciding with the British Museum exhibition Sunken Cities: Egypt's Lost Worlds in May 2016, this is the sensational story of two magnificent ancient aquatic cities, which once stood at the mouth of the river Nile. Now the ruins reveal how their inhabitants lived, worshipped and interacted with their foreign visitors.

She loves drawing people, especially in motion, suspended in air or interacting physically with their surroundings. Esther's illustrations have appeared in international newspapers, magazines, on greeting cards and T-shirts. In her spare time, Esther loves trampolining, cycling and being outdoors. Esther lives in Nijmegen, supposedly the oldest city in the Netherlands. Several Roman artefacts were found in her area, but none in her garden so far, so she keeps digging.
