Description

From earliest Egyptian societies to the great dynasties that built the pyramids, this fascinating study of one of the world's most ancient civilizations reveals not only how the aristocracy thrived, but how the average people lived and worked. This gloriously illustrated look at a timeless civilization takes us back to a time when pharaohs and queens ruled the Nile. From the monumental architecture pharaohs had built to commemorate themselves, to the worship of Ra, the Sun God, and other intriguing religious rites, to the political maneuvering of pharaohs, Gift of the Nile shows us the people who created one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever known. This gorgeously illustrated, illuminating look at one of the greatest civilizations of the ages is a perfect volume for the library of every curious historian.
