Ancient Egypt Revealed

Current Retail Price: $12.99

A dazzling look at Egyptian artifacts and architecture. Hundreds of excellent-quality, captioned, full-color photographs and reproductions demonstrate various aspects of culture and life. Two-page spreads focus on different facets of this ancient civilization, and transparent cutaways are used to view Tutankhamen's mummy, the interior of his tomb, the temple at Abu Simbel, and the hold of a cargo boat on the Nile. This spectacular presentation is easy to read and a delight to browse through. However, it is not substantial enough for reports, and lacks a time line or a cohesive historical overview. It's similar in concept and format to the "Eyewitness" series (DK), but even glitzier.
