In the popular imagination, Ancient Egypt is defined by its monumental architecture and treasure-packed royal tombs. What many people don't realize is that most of the tombs were plundered by grave robbers shortly after their royal occupants were interred. Fortunately, since the late 19th century, archaeologists have been able to save a large part of the treasure in tombs that had not been plundered. This book, through its text and illustrations, gives the reader exceptional insight into the genius of the ancient Egyptians, for whom gold was "the flesh of the gods".
