Pocket Explorer: Ancient Egypt and the Nile
Joyce Filer

ISBN 9781566568272 • hardback • $13.95

Discover Ancient Egypt and explore pyramids, tombs, temples, quarries, cities and farms along the banks of the River Nile

Egypt was one of the greatest ancient civilizations in Africa, and it was the River Nile which made life possible in this hot desert country. Explore the world of Ancient Egyptians, as you journey along the River Nile from deep in Africa to the Mediterranean Sea.

Travel to ancient Egypt and meet the people who lived and worked in the towns, temples, farms, deserts and oases through an exploration of significant places and artifacts. Find out how the flooding of the Nile from its sources deep in Africa created a fertile land in the midst of the desert, allowing a powerful and rich civilization to flourish. Explore some of the important sites along the Nile: the temples and tombs, the quarries and the pyramids, the cities and the farms. Examine the objects the Egyptians left behind to tell us about their lives.

At the end of the book is a fold-out pictorial map showing in entertaining detail Egypt and the Nile Valley.

Joyce Filer is an Egyptologist and teacher. She is the author of Pyramids and People in Ancient Egypt and The Mystery of the Egyptian Mummy.
