Summary
Professor Joann Fletcher pulls together the complete Story of Egypt - charting the rise and fall of the ancient Egyptians while putting their whole world into a context that we can all relate to. Joann Fletcher uncovers some fascinating revelations, from Egypt's oldest art to the beginnings of mummification almost two thousand years earlier than previously believed. She also looks at the women who became pharaohs on at least 10 occasions, and the evidence that the Egyptians built the first Suez Canal, circumnavigated Africa and won victories at the original Olympic games
Summary
Ancient Egyptian civilization lasted for 4,000 years and produced a dazzling array of monumental architecture, art, and religious writings. In The Story of Egypt, archaeologist Joann Fletcher provides a comprehensive and accessible summary of those millennia. Fletcher pays more attention to female rulers than do many other historians, and she emphasizes the importance in Egyptian cosmology of balancing female and male elements. She provides fascinating details of distinct cultures in the Lower and Upper Nile regions, describes technological developments that enabled Egypt to flourish, and provides historical context from the wider region. While Fletcher addresses general readers, her authoritative scholarship backs up her animated narrative. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
