A compelling study on the fascinating past of Egypt and its pyramids, Pharaohs, Fellahs and Explorers is an archaeological insight into one of the world's greatest ancient civilizations. It brings to light the pharaohs and their still mysterious world by unveiling some of the customs, traditions, and religious ideologies of this remarkable people. Delivering geographical details to the explorer, it studies portrait-making in Ancient Egypt, to delve even deeper with an examination of the religious beliefs of Ancient Egyptians and their pharaohs. To this last subject is dedicated the last part of the book.
A compilation of lectures, it is lavishly illustrated with B&W engravings, photographs and line drawings. Includes a list of illustrations, a table of contents and a preface.
