The Compact Timeline History of Ancient Egypt (Hardback)

Shereen Ratnagar


With spectacular monuments such as the Pyramids and the Sphinx, and a view of the afterlife that produced thousands of mummies, relics, and myths, ancient Egypt has fascinated everyone from Napoleon Bonaparte to schoolchildren around the world. "The Compact Timeline History of Ancient Egypt" explores the lives of the pharaohs and other historical figures, but also looks in detail at the daily lives of ordinary people - scribes, priests, and villagers - who maintained the machinery of the state. The book explains the intricacies of the culture's religious beliefs; examines ancient Egypt's art, relics, temples, monuments, and language; and, follows the rhythm of an agricultural society. As a great regional power, Egypt's relationships with its neighbours influenced the wider world. This book looks at the trading patterns and military expeditions that left Egypt's mark on Africa, the Mediterranean, western Asia, and even further afield. "The Compact Timeline History of Ancient Egypt" explores how archaeologists have uncovered various aspects of this unique society. A comprehensive, up-to-date record, this is a book that no Egyptologist can be without.
