Review

Rating: 7

The author, better known as the mystery writer Elizabeth Peters, has a very strong background in Egyptology with a PhD from the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute. The book manages to cover the breadth of ancient Egyptian history, interspersing anecdotes and theories about the lives of ancient Egyptians with keen insight into the various monuments and artifacts that have been uncovered throughout recent history.
