An Illustrated Introduction to Ancient Egypt, Charlotte Booth
1 An Illustrated Introduction to Ancient Egypt
Charlotte Booth UK Amberley Publishing 2014 1445633655 / 9781445633657 Soft cover New Book 
The Ancient Egyptians were not that different from people today and were driven by love, romance, good health, and family. They got drunk and had hangovers and 'called in sick' to work, with elaborate excuses. They suffered with familiar illnesses and were treated with not-so-familiar remedies. The environment the Egyptians lived in formed their religious beliefs, their diet, and the way they lived and died. This beautifully illustrated, accessible introduction to Ancient Egypt covers all the major aspects of religion, daily life, childhood, politics and finally death rites, through the words and possessions of the people who lived there.

Egypt: How A Lost Civilization Was Rediscovered [used book], Joyce Tyldesley
3 Egypt: How A Lost Civilization Was Rediscovered [used book]
Joyce Tyldesley UK BBC Books 2007 0563522577 / 9780563522577 Hardcover Good Good Book Royal 
For nearly two thousand years after the last pharaoh ruled Egypt the wonders of this ancient culture remained hidden, seemingly lost and forgotten for ever. Then, in the late eighteenth century, Napoleon's invasion of the country sparked an explosion of interest in ancient Egypt that burns as strongly today as ever. The obsession with anything and everything Egyptian has inspired many to dedicate their lives to the search for treasure in Egypt's sands. All of these explorers, collectors and archaeologists can be loosely classified as 'Egyptologists' and this relatively new science has been blessed with more than its fair share of intriguing characters, some of whom, by virtue of their larger-than-life personalities, curious habits or spectacular finds, have come to dominate the story of the rediscovery of ancient Egypt - the story of this book. In "Egypt: How A Lost Civilization was Rediscovered", highly respected author and archaeologist Joyce Tyldesley follows these real-life Indiana Joneses in their quest for the splendid monuments, tombs and artefacts that have unlocked many of the secrets of this mesmerizing civilization. From the nail-biting race to crack the hieroglyphic code to Howard Carter's dramatic discovery of the golden treasures in Tutankhamen's tomb - surely the most heart-stopping moment in the history of archaeology - we experience the excitement, emotion and intrigue of this gripping adventure story. Praise for Joyce Tyldesley: 'Tyldesley has added a new, more human dimension...her book should be required reading.' - "Sunday Times" on "Ramses: Egypt's Greatest Pharaoh".
