Review:

Queen Nefertiti, the Sphinx, the Great Pyramids--Egypt is steeped in the richest of pasts. Like the other Eyewitness volumes, superb photographs and concise explanatory text bring the subject to life, nearly matching a museum experience: here you can view 3,000- year-old fruit and bread, a close-up of a mummified head and the weapons of Egyptian soldiers.

Discover what was inside the Great Pyramid at Giza, how King Tut's tomb was found, and how hieroglyphics were deciphered. You might even recognize a similarity between the Egyptian obsession for hair care--prototypical curling irons, hairpins and combs--and your own struggle against "bad hair".

Synopsis:

Be an eyewitness to the unbelievable riches of the pharoah's court and to everything Egyptian, from amazing jewels to tools and from toys to immortal mummies. See the mummies of priests and kings; find out why even cats and dogs were mummified; and discover how hieroglyphics were diciphered.
