Synopsis

Welcome, reader, to Ancient Egypt! Take a trip back in time with us and find out what it was like to live in this powerful civilisation - from fear-inducing pharaohs and grotesque gods to extraordinary embalming techniques and amazing architecture!

Did Cleopatra really bathe in milk? How did Egyptians try to cure poor eyesight? And what did the weighing-of-the-heart involve?

Hilariously illustrated by Tom Morgan-Jones, and crammed full of fascinating (and gruesome) facts, this is high-interest history for children of 9+.
