Great summary. ( )
  JVioland | Jul 14, 2014 |
really, really interesting with many things i didn't know--writing hieroglyphics, history, the importance of the nile. ( )

Nicely done. Lots of illustrations and photos. Well researched but kept at a introductory level. I particularly liked the section on the Rosetta Stone and hyroglyphics. I did not realize that Cleopatra was a descendent of the Ptolomy Soter, who was a Greek general. ( )
