Everyday life in ancient Egypt by Jon Manchip White( Book )

40 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a wealth of archeological evidence, author Jon Manchip White presents a remarkably accurate picture of Egyptian life throughout dynastic times -- from the end of the third millennium to the Greek occupation in 330 BC. Because social conditions changed little during these 3,000 years, readers get a clear idea of the roles and tasks assigned to each section of the community -- to the Pharaoh and his noblemen; priests and soldiers; scribes and artists; and peasants, who formed the bulk of the population. How these people spent their leisure hours, how they dressed, what they ate and drank, forms of transportation used, how homes were built and furnished, and the activities of women and children are also thoroughly examined. Special emphasis is placed on the importance of religion in daily life, including the social significance of temples, pyramids, and tombs

Life in ancient Egypt by Adolf Erman( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What was it like to live in the ancient land watered by the Nile, thousands of years before Christ was born? How did a man earn his living, what did he wear, where did he go in his leisure time? What was the relationship between an ordinary Egyptian and his government, his wife, his children? Was life for him grim or optimistic, difficult or easy, reverent or worldly? Did his people travel, explore, conquer? Were they very much different from those of the other great civilizations of antiquity, the Greek and the Roman? What was the nature of their science, art, magic, religion? If the past has lessons for the present, what can we deduce from ancient Egyptian life that is of value to us today?
Marshal of France; the life and times of Maurice, comte de Saxe, 1696-1750 by Jon Manchip White( Book )

Døbt navnet Moritz, som illigitim søn af Aurora af Königsmarck og August den Stærke, kurfyrste af Sachsen og konge af Polen, tog han tidligt navnet Maurice de Saxe.
