Synopsis

Pharaoh's Egypt by Mick Manning

Be a fly on the wall in the time of the ancient Egyptians. See how the mummy-makers perform their grisly work, sail down the Nile with Huya the scribe, and creep into the tombs with robbers as they steal jewels by eerie torchlight. These pages are packed full of up-to-date information about the world of the Pharaohs from the latest archaeological discoveries. With spilled potions, squashed insects and flower petals, this book shows you ancient Egypt as it really happened!
