One of a series for older children which presents information about aspects of periods of human history. A certain immediacy is produced through the use of full-colour photographs of scenes recreating the period, some produced through the use of computer imagining. This volume presents the process of constructing an Egyptian pyramid and other aspects of life during that period, such as burial customs and beliefs. The endpapers show a map of Egypt and a time-line of the period from 4000BC to the birth of Jesus. Includes information on the sources of modern knowledge about this period and an index. Produced in the UK by the Roxby Paintbox Co (1991).
