The first English language book to go beyond the identification and classification of ancient Egyptian plants to discuss the gardens and gardeners of ancient Egypt. The book focuses on garden design, as evidenced by archaeological remains, written documentation on stone and papyrus, and visualisation in models and paintings. It covers the entire history of Ancient Egypt, from Predynastic times to the 30th Dynasty. Alix Wilkinson brings the glorious greenery of a lost civilisation back to life.
