Description

The lavishly illustrated pages of this oversize volume will capture the world of mighty pharaohs, great pyramids, and magnificent temples on the banks of the Nile. The book will take the reader on an unforgettable journey into ancient Egypt's world of Ramses II, Seti, and Tutankhamun, as well as all the pharaohs who left evidence of their mighty works and their culture's achievements. Egypt of the Pharaohs will also delve into the generations of explorers, treasure hunters, and archaeologists who - with not always honorable objectives - have searched, plundered, and studied Egypt's past glories. The search continues today, and this book will relate the latest findings of modern-day archaeologists who are charting ruined temples in cyberspace and recreating ancient Egypt with computer technology.
