Written by the French Egyptologist who was Director of Archaeology for the French government in Egypt, this book is a complete account of the ancient worlds of Egypt and Assyria. All aspects of society, from royalty to peasantry, religion to death, war to peace are described here in great detail. Clearly and enthusiastically written, it is like suddenly being taken back three thousand years to the market stalls of ancient Egypt, or the battlefields of the Assyrians.
