Synopsis

The Pharaoh Letters by Sue Booth, Terri Gillett

A lighthearted, quirky, ironic look at Ancient Egypt from the pen of a hapless scribe. *Have you ever wondered why the pyramids were built that way up, or what the pointy room at the top was used for? *Do you puzzle over who actually built the pyramids? *Are you keen to know where the first barbeques came from, or who created the first cigarette? New evidence of a Cairo Camel which pre-dates the Trojan Horse by a thousand years, and traces of an underground camel park beneath the Great Sphinx have revolutionised the way we understand the lives of the Pharaohs and their people. In these newly discovered letters from the scribe Ahmose to his Pharaoh, all these and many more questions are finally answered - at least that's what the authors claim! Read the scrolls that scientists and Egyptologists are avidly studying, presented here in this simple first volume of letters which span a year in the life of Ahmose.
