Four thousand years before the birth of Christ, ancient Egypt was the cradle of modern civilisation. Powerful pharaohs built great cities on the fertile banks of the Nile, and employed thousands of labourers to create lavish tombs and temples such as Thebes and the pyramids of the Giza plateau. Today the exceptional beauty and scale of ancient Egypt’s antiquities is legendary and draws millions of visitors to Egypt’s museums and monuments each year. Treasures of Ancient Egypt is a celebration of these wonders, from Tutankhamun’s tomb to Cleopatra’s obelisks, from ancient papyrus scrolls covered with hieroglyphs to golden amulets in the form of ankhs and scarabs.

With a combination of modern, specially commissioned colour illustrations and images of Egyptian antiquities and treasures, the world of the pharaohs is brought to life in vivid detail. For intrigued adults or fascinated children alike, this book provides a wealth of information about the riches of the ancient world.
