The beautiful & extraordinary objects that have survived from Egypt's ancient civilization have always excited awe & wonder. Buried in tombs, many were originally intended for everyday use, & they give us an amazing picture of the world of ancient Egyptians. The Egyptian antiquities in the collection of the Liverpool Museum in the U.K. are included here. Everyday activities are depicted in models or wall paintings, along with gods & goddesses & images of the afterlife. Illustrated in full color throughout, with clear easy-to-read text & a comprehensive glossary, this is an ideal basic guide to the arts & crafts of ancient Egypt.
