Add to basket Add to wishlist Description Drawing on a wealth of archeological evidence, author Jon Manchip White presents a remarkably accurate picture of Egyptian life throughout dynastic times -- from the end of the third millennium to the Greek occupation in BC. Because social conditions changed little during these 3, years, readers get a clear idea of the roles and tasks assigned to each section of the community -- to the Pharaoh and his noblemen; priests and soldiers; scribes and artists; and peasants, who formed the bulk of the population.
How these people spent their leisure hours, how they dressed, what they ate and drank, forms of transportation used, how homes were built and furnished, and the activities of women and children are also thoroughly examined.
Special emphasis is placed on the importance of religion in daily life, including the social significance of temples, pyramids, and tombs. Accompanying a vivid text are more than photographs and line drawings.

An intriguing examination of the extraordinary–and little known meeting between St. Francis of Assisi and Islamic leader Sultan Malik Al-Kamil that has strong resonance in today's divided world. A very informative and useful book for anyone interested in the daily lives of the ancient Egyptians.

The author does try to cover all of ancient Egypt's 3, year history at once, but can do it fairly well as everyday life change very little. I thought perhaps the book spent too much time on the temples and massive burial structures but of course they were part of everyday life as well/5.
