Temples, tombs, & hieroglyphs : a popular history of ancient Egypt by Barbara Mertz( Book )
67 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 3,388 libraries worldwide
Archarologist Mertz casts light on a remarkable civilization that, even after thousands of years, still stirs the human imagination and inspires awe with its marvelous mysteries and amazing accomplishments. This chronicle brings ancient Egypt to life as never before, from the first Stone Age settlements through the reign of Cleopatra and the Roman invasions. Illustrated with pictures, maps, photographs, and charts, it offers glimpses into Egyptian society and everyday life; stories of the pharaohs and the rise and fall of great dynasties; religion and culture; folklore and fairy tales; stories of the explorers, scientists, and unmitigated scoundrels who sought to unravel or exploit the ageless mysteries; and insights into the magnificent architectural wonders that rose up from the desert sands. Revised and updated to include the results of the most recent historical research and archaeological finds, Dr. Mertz's lively writing is unhampered by stuffy prose and dry academic formality.--From publisher description
