Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Discovering Egyptians" is an authoritative book about life in Ancient Egypt for 7-11 year olds. It focuses on the golden age of Rameses II when Ancient Egypt was at the height of its power and prosperity. In 14 superbly illustrated sections it covers all aspects of life in the world's first major ancient civilization, from food, transport and dress to housing, religion and health. It also looks in detail at mummies, pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes and hieroglyphs. One section deals with the Nile, Ancient Egypt's lifeblood. Along the bottom of each spread is an exciting story told in verse about a young Egyptian girl who goes on a journey in search of her lost pet bird and has various adventures along the way.
