It explains all aspects of the Egyptian World
Guest More than 1 year ago
If someone says: 'It explains all aspects of the Egyptian World' it means that this person doesn't understand what they are talking about. Even bigger and more comprehensive books on Egypt don't claim to explain all the aspects. In fact, Egyptologists acknowledge that they themselves are barely touching the tip of the iceberg.
