History Detective Investigates: Ancient Egypt is a hands-on, investigative approach to history. Learn all about Ancient Egypt, its people and the story of ancient Egypt that goes back some 4,000 years. Who were the Ancient Egyptians? Ancient Egypt has a remarkable history. Discover the mysteries of the pyramids, why the Egyptians mummified their people and the gods and goddesses that ruled their way of life. It tells the story of many great kings and pharaohs, such as Tutankhamen and Cleopatra. See how the hieroglyphs offer an insight into the daily life of the Egyptian people and how the Rosetta Stone helped unravel the secrets of the hieroglyphs. Why did the ancient Egyptians rely so heavily on the river Nile. Egypt is set in the middle of the desert so Egypt depended on the Nile for food, transportation and water. Contains maps, paintings, artefacts and photographs to show how the Egyptians lived. Ideally suited for readers age 8+ or teachers who are looking for books to support the new curriculum for 2014.
If you enjoy reading about the Ancient Egyptians then take a look at Stone Age to Iron Age, The Mayan Civilization, The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China and Early Islamic Civilizations.
