The pharaohs who created such great monuments as the Valley of the Kings and the temples at Karnak have been the subject of many books. But there has been little written for the general reader about the lives of ordinary Egyptians - the bureaucrats, scribes, craftsmen, and farmers - who were also part of this great civilization. In this book, T.G.H.James shows us in fascinating details what paintings and inscriptions from tombs and temples, official archives, private correspondence, accounts, and dispatches reveal aboutthe lives of men and women who lived more than three thousand years more
