Voices of Ancient Egypt by Kay Winters


Voices of Ancient Egypt by Kay Winters

Based on the latest historical research, this richly illustrated collection of poems gives readers a dynamic sense of everyday life in ancient Egypt. Each poem is in the voice of a particular worker, such as the scribe and the embalmer. Moser's vibrant watercolours portray how ancient Egypt was a multicultural mix of people.
