Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Did you know that the process of mummification took seventy days or that the ancient Egyptians practiced the earliest known form of dentistry? Ancient Egypt is an illustrated gift pop-up book featuring facts like this and more about the history of Egypt and showcases art and artifacts from the British Museum's massive Egyptian Antiquities collection. A wonderfully interactive, engaging, and informative text complements the creative pop-ups, showcasing various ancient Egyptian cultural innovations and making it fun for children and adults alike. Readers can learn about the elaborate embalming and mummification process that has fascinated archaeologists and the curious alike, explore the inside of an Egyptian pyramid replicated in pop-up, discover the mysterious ancient rites of an Egyptian god's temple, and translate code-like hieroglyphic symbols. Colorful, informative, and fun, Ancient Egypt is a wonderfully fascinating book for people of all ages who are interested in ancient Egypt.<BR>
