    Ancient Egipt has fascinated travellers for centuries. From the ancient Greek historian Herodotus to visitors today, Egypt has always held a special allure. This important new volume offers an intriguing insight into the religious and burial practices of the ancient Egyptians and the lives they led.
    The first section of the book deals with the tombs of ancient Egypt and devotes chapters to the tree most famous ancient burial sites in Egypt: Giza, Saqqara and the Valley of the Kings, where the famous tomb of the boy-king Tutankhamun was discovered.
    The second section of the book investigates the temples, from the impressive mortuary temples of the pharaohs, such as Ramesses II and Hatshepsut, the female pharaoh, to the temples erected in honor of the many gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt, including Isis, Nut and the cow-headed goddess Hathor.
    As well as providing us with an understanding of burial practices, the tombs and temples have also left us with an insight into the daily lives of the ancient Egyptians; their jobs, pastimes and family life. The tomb paintings depict craftsmen at work, hunters catching animals, and celebrations and feasts.
    Lavishly illustrated with beautiful photographs and detailed plans of the major sites, this informative book will inspire the reader with its fresh and authoritative view of this fascinating ancient civilization.
