This beautiful volume reveals an era in ancient Egypt known as the New Kingdom, a restless and aggressive time when Egypt became a Bronze Age superpower. The Egyptians presents this era's energy and splendor, illustrated with remarkable achievements in art and architecture. Each page displays the Egyptian's brilliant creations--magic amulets, tombs and temples, wall paintings and jewelry -- and the author weaves a true tale of the daily life, beliefs, and ceremonies of this people. Read about Hatshepsut, the queen who became pharaoh, and her mysterious disappearance; discover Egyptian fashion, in which men wore kilts, and women wore tight dresses; unravel the secrets of mummification and see what ancient Egyptians looked like; and hear the stories of the great pharaohs and deities who gave the kingdom power. With full-color photographs and the talent of a storyteller, the author paints a portrait of ancient Egypt that is accessible to students, fascinating for adult readers, and provides an ideal introduction to this magnificent culture.
