YEAR IN THE LIFE OF ANCIENT EGYPT

ANN ROSALIE DAVID    Book Number: 87848    Product format: Hardback

Based on years of prestigious academic work, Professor Rosalie David cleverly presents every aspect of life in Ancient Egypt through the lives of various characters, all based on mummies from the Manchester Museum whom she has led the study of. Using the device of the life of one family, through their eyes and those of the two daughters, Meryamun who was married to a physician, and Merenmut, and their youngest brother Ipy, all aspects of life are explored over a calendar year. Characters hail from all walks of life including royalty, nobility, officials, craftsmen and peasants showing every aspect of ritual and religious life in Ancient Egypt. There is an excellent overview of the many dynasties and kingdoms, the three seasons of inundation, planting, growing and harvesting, ritual and religious events including birth and death. We look at social customs, artisans, trades and crafts, the medical and legal professions, entertainment and personal appearance, education, military campaigns and funerary customs. There is a list of some major archaeological sites in Egypt and a chronological table of Egyptian history. Big glossy pages, beautiful typeface and dozens of colour photos. 264pp.
