From the cover: “This extraordinary book reflects the dramatic, groundbreaking TV series Ancient Egyptians, revealing what life was really like in this empire.
The text, which encompasses cutting-edge research, leads the reader through this ancient world. It is complemented by specially shot photographs and exclusively created computer graphics, which breathe life into the civilization to reveal it as never before.
Part one of the book follows the entire history of Ancient Egypt, from its start in 5000 BC; through to the end of the empire. As well as offering an insight into the world of the pharaohs, this comprehensive history explains all aspects of the culture, from architecture and warfare to medicine and women’s rights.
Part two of the book focuses on four specific stories of ordinary Egyptians, as dramatised in the TV series, and gives a full flavour of what their lives were like. These stories are uniquely based on real texts that have been pieced together to show a living slice of this lost world.”
