Truth or Busted: The Fact or Fiction Behind the Egyptians Hardback
by Kay Barnham
Part of the Truth or Busted series
Truth or Busted's ancient Egyptians title explores popular myths and legends about one of history's most fascinating periods in a tongue-in-cheek, humorous way that kids will find unputdownable!
Alongside features such as 'Pharoah Phact Phile' in which we learn about some of Egypt's wackiest rulers, Truth or Busted statements such as 'The ancient Egyptians used children as scarecrows' or 'Ground-up mummies were used as medicine' are explored.
We look at where the idea came from, whether it has any basis in truth, or whether they can be consigned to folklore.
Finally, each statement is given a TRUTH or BUSTED evaluation!
A must for anyone interested in the Egyptians, or studying history at school!
