About this title


Ancient Egypt - so familiar and yet so distant. We know so much about it, but there are still many unresolved questions. What were the pyramids actually for? How old is the Great Sphinx? Did Moses learn his beliefs at the court of Akhenaten? Why did the beautiful queen Nefertiti suddenly disappear? This volume explores and explains 70 of the most intriguing mysteries of this ancient civilization.
