Ancient Egypt on Five Deben a Day, Hardback Book

Ancient Egypt on Five Deben a Day Hardback


More reliable than Herodotus and more upbeat than The Book of the Dead, this is the essential guide for the discerning time-traveller.

This new addition to Thames & Hudson's successful Time Travel series takes the reader to Ancient Egypt in the time of Ramesses II (1250BC).

Egyptologist Donald Ryan guides the time-travelling tourist on a journey up the Nile, and en route he offers useful advice on everything from deciphering hieroglyphics to mummifying household pets.

So leave the protective amulets at home and banish all fear of being sold as a galley slave - this imaginative guide is all you need to survive and enjoy your visit to Egypt in its golden age.
