Beginning with the settlement of nomadic tribesmen along the banks of the Nile, The Story of Ancient Egypt traces the evolution of the culture that arose in that fertile valley through the three major periods known as the Old, Middle and New Kingdom. Their unique geographical setting enabled the Egyptians to harvest a bountiful crop right in the middle of the desert and to create a strong, hierarchical government led by the semi-divine Pharaoh - one that functioned smoothly for thousands of years. Protected and secure in villages lining the river, the Egyptian people enjoyed a standard of living unknown in most of the ancient world.The Story of Ancient Egypt focuses upon the achievements of this resourceful people the building of massive stone pyramids and temples, the development of an intricate written language (hieroglyphs), major discoveries in science and mathematics, and the design and creation of impressive works of art (painting, sculpture, and jewelry). It traces the primitive beliefs that evolved into a complex religion based upon the worship of animal-headed gods and goddesses, retelling the tales of such mythical figures as Hours, Osiris, and Isis. It describes the rituals associated with death and explores the Egyptian belief in an afterlife.Key features of The Story of Ancient Egypt are the panoramic views of the daily activities of the people the peasants and merchants as well as the scribes, priests, and other members of the elite upper class, while colorful portraits of major figures Ramses, Nefertiti, Akhenaten, Cleopatra, to name just a few bring this ancient culture to life.Included in the book are a timeline of major periods and events, numerous maps, and a chart of commonly used hieroglyphs.
