This book traces the early development of ancient pyramids and tombs, from the Mastaba burial tombs of the first dynasty, to the Great Pyramid of the fourth. Also exploring the lesser-known pyramids of the Old and Middle Kingdoms, the author discusses the construction methods involved and reveals the elaborate decorations used to celebrate the afterlife. With photographs of original Egyptian artwork found within these monuments, "Egyptian Pyramids and Mastaba Tombs" provides insight into an ancient Egyptian world that continues to fascinate people to today.
