The vanished and mysterious world of ancient Egypt captivates our imaginations: what was it really like to live on the banks of the Nile thousands of years ago? In a lively text complemented by sumptuous illustrations, Wilkinson tells the personal tales of 100 ancient Egyptians, ranging from the pharaoh Khufu (who built the Great Pyramid) and Queen Cleopatra, by way of their wealthy courtiers to ordinary men and women, including a doctor, priestess, musician, housewife - and a serial criminal.
