The Ancient Egyptians enjoyed a wide range of sports and games young men chased lions and ostriches across the desert, while dignified married couples relaxed over a game of senet . Children played with balls and dolls. Even the Egyptian kings took their own sporting prowess very seriously as living demi-gods they were expected to dominate the sports field just as they dominated every other sphere of Egyptian life. Dr Tyldesley is a well-known broadcaster and the author of many books, both scholarly and more popular, on Ancient Egypt.
