Description
The one hundred biographies here, spanning thousands of years of ancient Egyptian history, give voice not only to its rulers but also to the people who built its monuments, staffed government offices, farmed the Nile's flood plain, served in the country's temples, and defended its borders. Illustrated with 80 color and 120 black and white photos and drawings, the book offers a fresh perspective on ancient Egypt through the lives of Khufu and Ramesses II, Hatshepsut and Cleopatra, as well as the architect Imhotep, the court dwarf Perniankhu, and the sculptor Bak. Here too are Hemira, a priestess from a provincial Delta town; the irascible farmer Hekanakht; and the serial criminal Paneb.
