Valley of the Kings PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Valley of the Kings free pdf The Valley of the Kings and the region of Luxor are home to some of the greatest Archaeological treasures not only in Egypt but in the whole world. This book accompanies the reader on a journey of discovery to the magnificently decorated tombs of the Pharaohs and Queens of the new kingdom and their monumental funerary temples. With the aid of superb photographs and drawings, it is possible to reconstruct the events of the New Kingdom that led to the building of the royal tombs and, consequently, to understand the civilisation and culture of ancient Egypt, the sequence of its dynasties, and its famous Pharaohs whose presence influenced the ancient history of the West. This volume is a compendium of the most advanced archaeological research carried out on the west bank of the Nile but also, thanks to the skills of the narrators and the quality of the illustrations, a fascinating journey into the ancient heart of a country that has always been at the centre of human history.
