Description

The story of the world's greatest civilization spans four thousand years of history that has shaped the world. It is full of spectacular cities and epic stories of a constantly evolving society peopled with inventors, heroes and heroines, villains, artisans, and pioneers. Professor Joann Fletcher pulls together the complete story of Egypt, charting the rise and fall of the ancient Egyptians while putting their whole world into a context to which we can all relate.

Fletcher uncovers some fascinating revelations: new evidence shows that women became pharaohs on at least ten occasions and that the ancient Egyptians built the first Suez Canal and then circumnavigated Africa. From Ramses II's penchant for dying his grey hair to how we know that Montuhotep's chief wife bit her nails, Dr. Joann Fletcher brings alive the history and people of ancient Egypt as nobody else can.

      • content: From the startling revelation that there were at least 10 female pharaohs up to the reign of Cleopatra, ancient Egypt unfolds dramatically to fascinate listeners. What's more, the abundance of new information on the four thousand years revealed in this audiobook is delivered in a pitch-perfect performance by Kate Reading. Egyptian society's rich contributions to the arts and sciences are discussed in detail, and Reading's captivating narration sparkles like the Egyptian jewelry found in the many tombs excavated in modern times. She brings the characters and dynasties to life with crisp descriptive passages and dialogue so realistic that the ancients seem to come alive. E.E.S.
