For anyone intrigued by the mysteries of the ancient land of the pyramids, this is a record of civilization along the Nile and an account of the growth of Egyptian archaeology from its beginnings. Through the work of pioneer archaeologists - from Flinders Petrie at Amarna and Howard Carter in the Valley of the Kings, to Geoffrey Martin at Saqqara - all aspects of Egypt's rich culture are examined, including tombs, temples and pyramids, hieroglyphs and mummies. A gazetteer of sites to visit is provided, along with lists of pharoahs and a comparative chronology.show more
