Ancient Egypt lasted for more than 5,000 years. The foundation for much of the daily life, education, agriculture, craft development, travel, trade, religion, recreation, and funeral practices began during the Old Kingdom, approximately 2686-2160 B.C., and continued through the New Kingdom, which ended approximately 1069 B.C. In this book the author has re-created the voices of people who might have lived, worked, played and died during this time. A collection of poem-like portraits, including the hieroglyphic translation of each title alongside beautiful illustrations, this book is a great addition to a child’s Ancient Egyptian eduction.
The author of Voices of of Ancient Egypt is Kay Winters, with illustrations by Barry Moser
