Ancient Egypt

“From the Neolithic cave paintings in Wadi Sura—created when the region was still savannah grassland, not desert—to the Valley of the Kings, the funerary mask of Tutankhamun, and the rock-cut temples at Abu Simbel, Ancient Egypt takes a colorful look at the surviving wonders of Egyptian antiquity. Their legendary beauty and scale draw millions of visitors to the country’s monuments each year. 

Arranged by region, this photographic guide explores ancient settlements on the banks of the Nile, vast temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor, and, of course, the pyramids and the Sphinx. Alongside the world-famous sites are also fascinating, lesser-known places, such as the Step Pyramid of Djoser and the Statue of Khaefre. Expertly written text reveals how ancient Egypt developed its trade links and became such a powerful, wealthy force across North Africa and the eastern Mediterranean.”
