Pyramids of Ancient Egypt by John D. Clare
Why did the ancient Egyptians bury their rulers in gigantic stone pyramids? How did they achieve such amazing feats of engineering with simple tools and equipment? What was life like for the peasants and craftsmen who provided the labour? How did the Egyptians mummify a body? This book looks at these questions in the light of recent research and comes up with some fascinating answers. The I Was There photographic re-enactments combine with lively text to bring the story of the pyramids to life for a 20th-century readership.
