Members' price *

  • In this first book in the new 'Pocket Explorer' series, readers can travel back to Ancient Egypt and meet the people who lived and worked in the towns, temples, farms, deserts and oases. Discover how the flooding of the Nile from its sources deep in Africa created a fertile land in the midst of the desert, allowing a powerful and rich civilization to flourish. Explore some of the important sites along the Nile: the temples and tombs, the quarries and the pyramids, the cities and the farms. Examine the objects the Egyptians left behind to tell us about their lives. At the end of the book is a fold-out pictorial map showing in entertaining detail Egypt and the Nile Valley. 'Pocket Explorer Ancient Egypt and the Nile' is the perfect study aid to complement the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum on Ancient Egypt.
