Overview

This is certainly not another addition to the long line of coffee table books on ancient Egypt. Strouhal's detailed and intelligent, yet eminently readable and interesting text illuminates the life of the ancient Egyptian from birth to afterlife. The breadth of coverage is vast, including children's games, courtship and marriage, medicine, the working life of men from farmers and artists to priests, the sacred and secular administration, the position of women, and the business of mummification - and much more besides. The text is accompanied by mostly colour illustrations. Highly recommended!
