Ancient Egypt: Foundations of a Civilization
30 Nov 05
Who built the pyramids? - and why?
What life was like for the earliest Egyptians?
When and how did hieroglyphic writing develop?
How did Egyptian civilization changed through time?
What religion did the ancient Egyptians practice?
The answers to these questions lie deep in Egypt ’s past
… and in the pages of Ancient Egypt.
The number of books written about dynastic Egypt , the period from the pyramids to Cleopatra’s fatal encounter with an asp, could probably fill the local public library. On the other hand, those books dealing with the period predating the great pharaohs would hardly fill a shelf and none of those would be considered an accessible read by anyone other than a seasoned specialist.
Yet some of the most fundamental and fascinating aspects of later Egyptian civilization can only be understood by looking deep into Egypt ’s past.
Douglas Brewer’s Ancient Egypt: Foundations of a Civilization traces the enthralling history of Egypt ’s formative era, from the Nile Valley ’s earliest inhabitants through to the building of the first pyramids. Beautifully illustrated it brings pre-dynastic Egypt back to life.
