Life in Ancient Egypt
Courier Corporation, 1 ene. 1971 - 570 páginas
What was it like to live in the ancient land watered by the Nile, thousands of years before Christ was born? How did a man earn his living, what did he wear, where did he go in his leisure time? What was the relationship between an ordinary Egyptian and his government, his wife, his children? Was life for him grim or gay, difficult or easy, reverent or worldly?

What was the nature of their science, art, magic, religion? If the past has lessons for the present, what can be deduced from ancient Egyptian life that is of value to us today?
