This title features two highly accessible books charting the mythology and religion of ancient Egypt over 3,000 years, and the temples, tombs and treasures of the world's first great civilization. It offers a full analysis of the gods and goddesses, and their roles, appearances, personalities and characteristics. It is a tour of temples that built for the deities of ancient Egypt, including Luxor and Karnak, and the burial sites of Giza, Memphis and Saqqara, and the Valley of the Kings. It offers a detailed account of the famous pyramids and tombs of the pharaohs, their queens and their royal officials. It is a magnificent visual guide with over 850 photographs and maps of the paintings and sculptures, architecture and art, buildings and artefacts. This two-volume survey of ancient Egypt explores all the main sites, temples and tombs, and investigates how mythology and religion underpinned this great civilization. The first book affords an intriguing insight into the state religion of the Egyptians, their gods, goddesses and deified rulers, and their religious and burial practices. The second book deals with the rediscovery of ancient Egypt and has a full and comprehensive survey of the temples and buildings. Lavishly illustrated throughout with photographs and plans of the sites, these informative volumes will inspire the reader with their accessible and authoritative account of this ancient civilization.
