Overview

From the British Museum, the premier academic center of ancient Egyptian culture and artifacts besides Egypt itself, comes a new, exciting book for kids exploring ancient Egypt through its geography and its effect on culture.

Providing a fascinating look at how geography and the environment shapes human civilization, Atlas of Ancient Egypt gives children a comprehensive look at the history and culture of ancient Egypt, while also demonstrating a new way to think about how history and culture are often shaped by the very places in which they occur.

Divided into four main sections, the Atlas' first section gives background information about Egypt's history and geography. The second section explains how Egypt was formed and how the environment there shaped the development of the ancient world. The third contains maps and descriptions detailing the histories of the Nile Delta, the Nile Valley, and the deserts and oases. The final section looks at recent history and the ways in which historians uncover these amazing secrets. Breathtaking photos and compelling facts pull young readers into one of the most remarkable places on earth-ancient Egypt.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Whether it is mummies, pharaohs, golden masks, or pyramids that attract them, young history lovers will find those intriguing topics here, as well as a wealth of information about Egypt from prehistoric times to today's Egyptian Republic. Beginning with Egypt's geology and the River Nile, a well-written text and beautifully reproduced pictures (Abrams has lived up to its reputation) lead the reader through colorful pages on gods and goddesses, cities and deserts, kings and commoners, war and daily life. A real plus is the abundance of maps—this is, after all, an atlas—locating sites through the centuries of changing dynasties and conquests. The "Spotlight on Cities" pages are outstanding, describing and illustrating important settlements along the Nile such as Alexandria, Memphis, Abydos, Thebes, and Aswan. For those interested in Egypt's later history, Part Four offers a glimpse into the work of scholars and archaeologists from Napoleon's conquest to the present day. Laid out in exceptionally well-designed spreads with photographs from the British Museum and other sources, this volume will capture the attention of middle readers, young adults, and even adults who want an overview of Egypt's long and fascinating history. (The author had the resources and curators of the British Museum at her disposal.) For those who also enjoy the pleasure of exploring an especially attractive book, it is a perfect addition to any collection of titles on ancient Egypt. A useful glossary, an index, and a bibliography will help students with further research. 2005, Abrams, Ages 10 up.
