Full Synopsis
Esteemed Egyptologist Barbara Mertz updates her widely praised social history of the people of ancient Egypt, which was originally published in 1968. Combining impeccable scholarship with a delightfully personal style, the author reconstructs the life of the Egyptians from birth to death, and beyond death, too. She also presents much fascinating detail on the building of the pyramids and the intricate art of mummification. Students and laymen alike will enjoy the wealth of authentic material on every aspect of Egyptian life that Mertz provides.

"One can only highly recommend the book." ---Natural History

"Mertz's style remains informal and down-to-earth, and her impeccable scholarly credentials never lead her to overstate or dogmatize." ---Publishers Weekly
