But for the excessive use of the word 'whilst', a fantastic book about ancient Egypt. ( )

Although they were created thousands of years ago, the great monuments of Ancient Egypt continue to absorb and astonish us today. These imposing constructions - the Sphinx, the Pyramids, the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, and the monumental temples of Luxor and Karnak - demonstrate the complexity and strength of that civilization, while the fabulous treasures from Tutanhkamun's tomb are testament to its intense cultural richness. United as one country in 3100 BC, Egypt developed into an unequaled economic and cultural power under the pharaohs, one that endured for over 3000 years. The ancient land bordering the Nile is still revealing its secrets, and our understanding of this extraordinary civilization is still deepening and changing. Lavishly illustrated throughout, Ancient Egypt: Kingdom of the Pharaohs gives an up-to-date account of the theories that have been used to describe this sophisticated culture, looking in detail at all the most important people, sites, and artifacts, and explaining practices, customs, and beliefs.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:06:08 -0400)

Chronicles the rise and decline of the ancient Egyptian civilization, exploring the society and culture that developed over three millennia.
