This work is a showcase for the treasures of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Following the chronological layout of the Museum, the book tours the collections held in each hall, with accompanying text by international Egyptologists. Highlights include the 4000-year-old jewels of a princess from Dahshur, shown for the first time to a non-specialist audience, the funerary treasure of Queen Ahhotep, the tombs of the kings and queens at Tanis on the Nile Delta, and statues from the Temple of AmenRe at Karnak.
