      I used to think that the history of Ancient Egypt was as overwhelming and daunting as a trek across the desert. Professor Brier takes the listener step by step and breaks it down into manageable sections, like a traveler going from oasis to oasis, with time for review and reflection between segments.   This is a first rate book on the General History of Ancient Egypt from Pre-Historic times until the end of the Roman Empire. The 13 various contributors--Betsy Bryan, Gae Callendar, Janine Bourriau, Jaromir Malik and Ian Shaw among others--give an excellent overview of Egypt's long and distinguished History.5/5(5).

      Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, was also a scholar, murderer, lover of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony and one of the most remarkable women in distinguished historian and classicist Michael Grant confirms that her reputation as a temptress was well-founded. Dr. Brier is also the host of The Learning Channel's series The Great Egyptians. Professor Brier is the author of Ancient Egyptian Magic (), Egyptian Mummies (), Encyclopedia of Mummies (), The Murder of Tutankhamen: A True Story (), Daily Life in Ancient Egypt (), and numerous scholarly articles.

      The story, told in graphic novel form, follows a group of friends who travel back in time and explore life in Ancient Egypt. At various different points in the story there are relevant puzzles, fact boxes, activities and project ideas. This book has a high visual appeal and is a great addition to your library of Egyptian topic books. Understanding Ancient Egypt We really hope you enjoy these fun facts about Egypt.
