As someone who is developing an interest in the subject, I bought this book as a starting point to give me some more information about Ancient Egypt; the history, archaeological findings, culture, art etc, and it does not disappoint. It is clearly set out, with each chapter beginning a new period of time in Egypt's history. There are photos and drawings of archaeological findings, as well as descriptions. I highly recommend this book to everyone- whether you are looking in to Egyptology as a hobby, or are looking to pursue it as a career.
