There are already many children’s books about ancient Egypt. Yet, virtually all focus on the later periods in ancient Egypt’s long history, particularly the 18th Dynasty (Akhenaton, Tutankhamun and Hatshepshut) or the even later Graeco-Roman period (Alexander the Great, Ptolemy and Cleopatra). The Story of Early Ancient Egypt however begins ‘Before the Pharaohs’ and covers 18,000 years of amazing human history in an easy, readable style. Each chapter chronicles a period or theme in a comprehensive, yet engaging, manner. Heavily illustrated with full-colour artwork to engage readers, 20 photos showing genuine artefacts from the period concerned to aid understanding, and 3 maps that help readers to place ancient Egypt in its geographical context.
