Summary
"More than 150 stunning photos celebrate the wonders of ancient Egypt, from its hieroglyph-covered papyrus scrolls to the awe-inspiring pyramids. Four thousand years before the birth of Christ, ancient Egypt was the cradle of modern civilization. Powerful pharaohs built great cities on the fertile banks of the Nile, and thousands labored to build lavish tombs and temples. Through beautiful color photographs and expert text by an archeologist, Treasures of Ancient Egypt tells the stories of the pyramids, the Sphinx, the Valley of the Kings, and the artifacts--from golden amulets to mummies, wall paintings to statues--discovered there."--Description from Amazon.ca
