An enjoyable book by a skilled author Financial Times The civilization we know as Ancient Egypt stretched over three thousand years. What was life like for ancient Egyptians? What were their beliefs - and how different were they from ours? The Penguin Book of Myths and Legends of Ancient Egypt uses Egypts vivid narratives to create a panorama of its history, from the earliest settlers to the time of Cleopatra. Gathered from pyramid texts, archaeological finds and contemporary documents, these stories cover everything from why the Nile flooded annually to Egyptian beliefs about childbirth and what happened after death. They show us what life was really like for rich and poor, man and woman, farmer and pharaoh, bringing a long-dead culture back to life. By painstakingly analysing the myths, Tyldesley endeavours to get under the skin of Egyptian life, and meets the unsung characters of Egyptian history The Times As panoramic a survey as one could hope to read Tom Holland, Observer Notes Every Egyptian myth and legend from the Eye of Ra to the legends of Isis, retold in fascinating details and lavishly illustrated and designed with colour plates and integrated b/w pictures.
