Description

Who were people of the ancient world? What was it like to be a farmer or a soldier or an artisan in ancient times? This series creates portraits of life in ancient civilizations through the inhabitants. Each chapter focuses on a different part of society, such as peasants, scholars/scribes, priests, soldiers, rulers, and more. This book details the lives of the Kushites, an ancient people in Africa. They were sometimes called the Nubians. Neighbors to ancient Egyptians, the Kushites were known for building temples and tombs, such as the temple of Dendur, creating their own written language called Meroitic, and playing an important role in trade in the ancient world.show more
