Read full description of the books Atlas van het oude Egypte:This important book treats an old theme - the civilization of ancient Egypt - in an entirely new way: never before has Egyptian culture been presented in the form of an atlas. In fact it is far more than an atlas in the traditional sense of the word: in addition to the many historical and topographical maps, the book contains a substantial text by two distinguished Egyptologists as well as numerous color photographs and drawings illustrating every aspect of this fascinating subject.
The central section of the book takes the reader on a journey down the Nile, calling at some 90 sites where significant discoveries have been made or spectacular monuments stand. From the recent rescue of Abu Simbel from the waters of Lake Nasser to the pyramids of Giza, from the treasures of Tut'ankhamun to the shifting sands of the delta, the reader is transported effortlessly by means of maps, photographs, site plans and a most graphic account to the visible remains.
