Overview

Although they were created thousands of years ago, the great monuments

of Ancient Egypt continue to absorb and astonish us today. These imposing

constructions – the Sphinx, the Pyramids, the tombs in the Valley of the

Kings, and the monumental temples of Luxor and Karnak – demonstrate

the complexity and strength of that civilization, while the fabulous

treasures from Tutanhkamun’s tomb are testament to its intense cultural

richness. United as one country in 3100 BC, Egypt developed into an

unequaled economic and cultural power under the pharaohs, one that

endured for over 3000 years.

The ancient land bordering the Nile is still revealing its secrets, and our

understanding of this extraordinary civilization is still deepening and

changing. Lavishly illustrated throughout, Ancient Egypt: Kingdom of the

Pharaohs gives an up-to-date account of the theories that have been used

to describe this sophisticated culture, looking in detail at all the most

important people, sites, and artifacts, and explaining practices, customs,

and beliefs.
