A fascinating tour of the most important sites of ancient Egypt, this book is made all the more compelling by the inclusion of the author's personal archaeological adventures. Armchair archaeologists will learn little-know facts about the lives of both everyday people of ancient Egypt and royalty, as well as live vicariously through the anecdotes of one of Egypt's eminent Egyptologists. In this lavishly illustrated volume, one of today's foremost Egyptologists guides readers through the architectural landscape of pharaonic Egypt, from the houses and palaces of the living to the temples of the gods to the tombs of the dead. Hundreds of photographs and a compelling text reveal the mysteries of ancient Egypt as unearthed through major excavations. Egyptologists have learned how the ancient Egyptians lived and how they prepared for death, and have gained great insight that places unearthed treasures into their proper context. They have also been able to reconstruct how the Egyptians saw the universe and how they perceived their own place within the universe. "Realm of the Pharaohs" takes readers on a tour of the most important sites from the Pyramids at Giza to the Valley of the Kings, and recounts the history of the most famous kings and queens, as well as the everyday lives of the people. This work takes you on an insider's tour of pharaonic Egypt by one of today's foremost Egyptologists.
