The Pyramids of Egypt, I.E.S. Edwards

Penguin Books 230464 Great Britain 1993 0140136347 / 9780140136340 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Dr Edwards draws both on his research and on the work of many archaeologists who have dug in Egypt.

His final chapter, dealing with their construction and purpose, puts the pyramids into the perspective of ancient Egyptian society. This revised edition includes recent discoveries and research. 324 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
