The Egyptian Museum, one of the worldÕs most famous cultural institutions, presents the whole history of ancient Egypt, from the formation of the first unitary state in the Nile Valley to the Roman conquest. Its archaeological treasures shed light on the most important periods of Egyptian history: works of art that are astounding in their skill and ingenuity, objects used in daily life by men and women who died thousands of years ago, and the mortal remains of some of the greatest pharaohs of antiquity.
Together with comprehensive descriptions of the famous grave goods of Tutankhamun and the treasures of Tanis, the book reviews what a century of excavation has revealed at the pyramid sites of Giza, Saqqara, and Dahshur, the royal tombs of Thebes, and the temple of Karnak, where hundreds of statues have been found, including some of the most splendid examples of Egyptian sculpture.
This beautifully illustrated book is an elegant introduction to the worldÕs greatest collection of Egyptian antiquities, presenting the Egyptian MuseumÕs finest treasures and providing a clear, concise, but detailed portrait of the marvelous culture that gave rise to them.

Also available in French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish.
