Product description

This is a vivid view of life in ancient Egypt. More than 5,000 years ago, the ancient Egyptians founded one of the world's oldest civilizations. We know of its pyramids, art and pharaohs. But what was life really like then? Through deep investigative research, the authors explore the social and material existence in ancient Egypt, from what people ate and drank to how they worked, lived, played and prayed. It features colour and black-and-white images throughout, along with maps.
