Mr. Aldred does a wonderful job writing about the beautiful pieces of jewerly that were discovered from the tombs of Egypt. The photographs and illustrations are excellent, whether they are in color or black and white.
The information he provided of how each piece was made, the signifcance of the materials they worked with and the various techniques used to create such a piece makes this book a real treasure.
In any case, for the novice, this makes a great book to appreciate Egyptian craftsmen.
