9781444785166: The Story of Egypt

The story of the world's greatest civilization spans four thousand years of history that has shaped the world. It is full of spectacular cities and epic stories of a constantly evolving society peopled with inventors, heroes and heroines, villains, artisans, and pioneers. Professor Joann Fletcher pulls together the complete story of Egypt, charting the rise and fall of the ancient Egyptians while putting their whole world into a context to which we can all relate.Fletcher uncovers some fascinating revelations: new evidence shows that women became pharaohs on at least ten occasions and that the ancient Egyptians built the first Suez Canal and then circumnavigated Africa. From Ramses II's penchant for dying his grey hair to how we know that Montuhotep's chief wife bit her nails, Dr. Joann Fletcher brings alive the history and people of ancient Egypt as nobody else can.

Review :

The engaging and highly enthusiastic Professor Joann Fletcher explores what she contends is the 'world's greatest civilisation'. Guardian You can't fault Fletcher's passion or knowledge, which, like in her previous outing in 'Life and Death in the Valley of the Kings', is always accessible. Independent
