Ancient even to the ancients, Egypt was a great nation a thousand years before the Minoan civilization was established in Crete. It was viewed by the Greeks and Romans of 2,000 years ago with the same awe with which we view ancient Rome and Greece today.

Egypt: Land of the Pharaohs based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The beginning and middle of the book is really informative, with floorplans of the sites being described. However, it seems to lose steam by the end, when discussing areas that are off the beaten path. There is a good section with various books, movies, music and other references, so the reader can read more on the different topics. My only other complaint is that it's a bit heafty, to carry around, so I won't be able to take it to Egypt with me, to compare the text with the real thing.
