Every page features several photographs and illustrations that help the reader and further illuminate these ancient people.
The staggering amount of material that had to be assembled and collated for Families, not to mention the actual writing itself, leaves this reviewer in awe of the accomplishment. . . . A book to own, read cover to cover, and pull from the shelf again and again.
This remarkable compilation of biographical and historical data is original in its scope, format, and content
This groundbreaking new book illuminates the lives of the kings, queens, princes and princesses of ancient Egypt, unravelling family relationships and exploring the parts they played in politics, cultural life and religion. It ranges from the dawn of Egyptian history, when only isolated glimpses are available of the royal family, through the vast progeny of Ramesses II, and ends with the fiendishly complicated - and blood-soaked - interconnections of the Ptolemies and Cleopatras.See all Product description
