    great resource for studying ancient Egypt

    A few years ago we visited Chicago during "Tut Mania" when the King Tutankhamon exhibit was at the Field Museum and all the other museums also had exhibits related to ancient Egypt. I found a couple of books on the general subject, Who Was King Tut? by Robert Edwards (a "Who Was..." biography from Grosset and Dunlap) and this Landmark Book entitled The Pharoahs of Ancient Egypt. We have read several other Landmark Books, mostly about American history, and have found them excellent. The book begins with the rediscovery of Ancient Egypt from A. D. 1789 to 1822 with the finding of the Rosetta Stone, and then goes back to tell the story of Egypt from its beginning, through the times of Cheops, the Hyksos, Hatshepsut, Thutmose, Akhnaton and Tutankhamon, and Rameses the Second, with concluding remarks about the history of Egypt since then.
    The oldest dates are from 25,000 to 10,000 BC, which are longer than most Biblical based chronologies, but many Bible-believing scientists believe they are within the range of possibility. There is a little evolutionary theory about the development of civilization in the second chapter, but besides this, the description of what has been deduced about life and times in ancient Egypt under the Pharaohs is fascinating. There is one major factual discrepancy that I noticed, and it may just be due to the fact that no one knows for sure, but Who Was King Tut? says, "Who were his parents? Even that is not known for sure. His father was most probably Pharaoh Amenhotep IV" (who changed his name to Akhenaten), whereas The Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt refers to "Akhnaton's half-brother, a little boy of about six named Tutankhaton" (whose name was changed to Tutankhamon). Perhaps some mysteries of ancient Egypt remain unsolvable.
