Drawing years of research, the author chronicles the history of Ancient Egypt—from the building of the Great Pyramid through the rise and fall of the Middle Kingdom, a peak of Pharaonic culture and the period when writing first flourished—in an account that shows what modern humans can really learn from the remaining architecture, objects and writing of this civilization.

McMillan Palgrave

"Another solid work of history from an author and historian who truly grasps the mysteries of ancient Egypt." - Kirkus Reviews

Drawing on a lifetime of research, John Romer chronicles the history of Ancient Egypt from the building of the Great Pyramid through the rise and fall of the Middle Kingdom: a peak of Pharaonic culture and the period when writing first flourished. Through extensive research over many decades of work, reveals how the grand narratives of 19th and 20th century Egyptologists have misled us by portraying a culture of cruel monarchs and chronic war. Instead, based in part on discoveries of the past two decades, this extraordinary account shows what we can really learn from the remaining architecture, objects, and writing: a history based on physical reality.
