    A must-have paperback volume for anyone interested in ancient Egypt.

    The British Museum has one of the largest and finest collection of antiquities from outside of Egypt and Sudan. Packed with information and insights, this classic book, now in paperback, contains over 200 of the most important objects and some lesser-known but equally beautiful pieces.

    An introduction offers a brief history of the vast Egyptian collections of the British Museum. Each of the 200 objects has a short accompanying text and full page colour illustration.

    Arranged in chronological order, these intriguing objects range from the earliest predynastic period through the 3,000 year rule of the pharaohs up to Roman Egypt, offering an overview of the art of ancient Egypt in a single volume.
