"An entertaining overview of an extraordinarily diverse ancient civilization."—Biblical Archaeology Review.
Here are all the rulers and dynasties of Egypt presented in chronological order, from Narmer, who first united the lands along the Nile, to Cleopatra some 3,000 years later. The biographical portraits of each pharaoh form a comprehensive and immensely readable history of ancient Egypt, brought to life through the exploits and personalities of its rulers.
We see how individual pharaohs helped to shape Egyptian civilization and were shaped by it themselves. The rich illustrative material includes timelines and specially drawn cartouches of each pharaoh with translations of their names.
The book is at once an accessible history, an essential work of reference, and a visual introduction to this always fascinating ancient civilization.
