Description

This new volume offers insight into the burial practices of the ancient Egyptians. It looks in detail at architecture and construction techniques and traces the development of individual tombs into lavish complexes. These sites also give us an understanding of ancient beliefs: paintings, statues, carvings and texts depict scenes both from mythology and from daily life. The Great Pyramids themselves are testimony to the status of the kings, who were worshipped as gods after death. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and detailed plans of the major sites, this informative book will inspire the reader with its fresh and authoritative view of this fascinating ancient civilization.
