Synopsis: Masterpieces of Ancient Egypt is the first illustrated guide to the highlights of the British Museum's wonderful collection. It features over 180 of the most stunning and important Egyptian and Sudanese artefacts in the Museum, including not only internationally famous items such as the Rosetta Stone, but also a wealth of lesser-known but equally significant or beautiful pieces. The objects are arranged in chronological order, beginning with the earliest predynastic pots and figurines, and continuing through the three thousand year rule of the Pharaohs, right up to Roman Egypt and the Coptic Christian period.
About the Author: NIGEL STRUDWICK is a curator in the Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan at the British Museum. His publications include Thebes in Egypt.
