Summary
"Explore the daily lives of ordinary people in ancient Egypt (3000 to 30 B.C.E.) through reconstructions based on the hieroglyphic inscriptions, paintings from tombs, and scenes from the temple walls of the people themselves. Students can use this up-to-date resource on the subject to examine the history of one of our oldest civilizations. Detailed descriptions of its religion, its unusual form of government, the manner of ancient work and play, its magnificent art, the reasons for its military domination, and its intellectual accomplishments are included to help recreate the time period. Modern readers will be surprised to find fundamental similarities between our lives today and the lives of these ancient peoples living over 4,000 years ago."--Jacket
