Empires of the Plain: Henry Rawlinson and the Lost&hellip by Lesley Adkins
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Character, 20 July 2003
This book describes the life of the amazing character Henry Rawlinson, and the adventurous life he led as a soldier, explorer and diplomat. He was absolutely fearless in anything he tackled, which made it possible for him to climb up to a cuneiform inscription in Iran that provided the key for decipherment. A very absorbing read and a very good introduction to ancient cuneiform writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpected Gem!, 19 April 2003
This wonderful book is full of fascinating information about ancient Egypt and hieroglyphs. It is the best I have found for explaining hieroglyphs, aimed at absolute beginners. Very reasonably priced, it is perfect for anyone doing a trip down the Nile or for the armchair traveller.
