The Egyptians: Mummies, Temples and Tombs(2003)
More Real-life Tales from Ancient Egypt
A non fiction book by Clive Dickinson
Published to accompany a live-action TV series, this book vividly brings to life the stories of five people who lived in Egypt over 2,000 years ago, as recorded on original papyrus documents or etched in stone. The individuals whose lives are so vividly recounted include the royal sculptor Thutmose, who is remembered as the creator of one of the best-known pieces of ancient Egyptian art - the plaster bust of Nefertiti. Then there is Inamun, the temple official who set out on an heroic adventure down the Nile in search of materials to build a sacred barge to the god Amun. Other tales include that of the young weaver Nakhte, who had a short and tragic life; Weni the pyramid builder, who ended up buried in the very pyramid he helped to build; and Pharaoh Nectanebo II, last of the Egyptian pharaohs, who sought to protect his realm through magical ritual.
