Ancient Egypt (Picturing the Past) by John Malam

Egypt was one of the great civilizations of the ancient world. Egyptian monuments, temples and royal tombs have provided a rich source for understanding the lives of ancient Egyptians. But Egypt was more the pharaohs, priests and pyramid builders. There were farmers, craftspeople, traders, doctors and artists; there were families and children. Dinners were cooked and games were played, while battles were fought and the Nile was kept from flooding. Archaeological discoveries have shed light on the lives and beliefs of ordinary people. Using photographs, illustrations, archaeology information boxes, and How Do We Know? boxes, which provide evidence for the information given, Ancient Egypt recreates daily life in remarkable and well-founded detail. An extensive timeline, a glossary, a further information section and an index enrich the book. Ancient Egypt is part of the Picturing the Past Series from Enchantend Lion Books: How do we know what we know about ancient peoples and their cultures that have disappeared? Ultimately, there are three main sources of information: the images that survive in wall paintings, ceramics and sculptures; artifacts, such a jewelry, utensils, toys, clothing, and tools; and the writings of ancient authors that have survived the ravages of time. From such sources, it is possible to begin to reconstruct the life of the distant past with an astonishing degree of accuracy.
