Abstract:

Reveals the history of ancient Egypt through the great archaeological discoveries, from the pre-dynastic period to the Graeco-Roman era.

"Ancient Egypt: The Great Discoveries highlights everything important and fascinating in Egyptian archaeology from 1799 - the year of the discovery of the Rosetta Stone by Napoleon's Expedition - up to the present-day excavations of Zahi Hawass in the Valley of the Golden Mummies. Some finds are world famous: the Faiyum portraits; the breathtakingly beautiful tomb of Queen Nefertari; King Khufu's royal boats. And, of course, Tutankhamun himself. Others, less well known, will be a revelation - the Ferlini Treasure with its superb gold finds, the jewels of Egyptian princesses unearthed at Dahshur, and the tomb of Kha, architect of Pharaoh."--BOOK JACKET.
