9780007143993: Ancient Egyptians: The Kingdom of the Pharaohs Brought to Life

This title is based on a series revealing what life was really like in Ancient Egypt. Channel 4/ Learning Channel's #6 million series sees Wall-to-Wall TV team up with the company that did the special effects on Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" to produce a series which was four years in the making. The combination of drama, graphics and cutting-edge research will be reflected in a beautiful book with original C.G.I. images created specially for the book. As well as forming a stand-alone guide to Ancient Egypt, the book also focuses on four very specific stories that give a full flavour of what daily life was like then. It also goes behind the scenes to show how the series was made and the revelations about Ancient Egypt that came to light through this. Full colour spreads depict the 137 sets and locations and reflect the scope of the production - including the 200 extras and over 1000 costumes that were used.

Review:

This is a book that informs and entertains in equal measure, with its unique combination of up-to-date evidence on the details of life and death in ancient Egypt and vivid snapshots of real individuals' life-stories (sticking closely to the surviving ancient texts). --Ian Shaw, writer of The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt and The British Museum Dictionary of Ancient Egypt, Exploring Ancient Egypt (Places and Time), Prehistory of Ancient Egypt.
