Summary

The allure of ancient Egypt has endured over many centuries – and this authoritative volume offers further
intriguing insights. It delves into the tombs, devoting chapters to the most famous burial sites: Giza, Saqqara
and the Valley of the Kings, where the resting place of the boy-king Tutankhamun was discovered. The book also describes Egypt’s temples, religions and myths, from the impressive mortuary temples of the pharaohs, such as Ramesses II, to elaborate funerary rituals, offerings and superstitions.With maps, chronologies and artwork supplementing more than 750 photographs, this book captures the essence of an enduring epoch.
