The Egyptians: An Introduction
Ever since Herodotus,?the father of history?, described the wonders of Egypt as numbering more than those of any other land, the ancient Egyptians have been held in awe by the rest of the world. Their monuments are of such staggering scale, power and beauty? the Valley of the Kings, the Tomb of Tutankhamun, the Pyramids? that their very existence dumbfounds us; their society so sophisticated that it defies belief. Tracing the history of the land of the Pharaohs from the Old Kingdom, through the Ramesside period to eventual surrender to Persian Rule in 525 BC, Sir Alan Gardiner's account of this advanced culture is both erudite and engaging.
