Egyptology

Publisher: Templar Publishing

Review

This beautifully produced book, complete with a gold and jewel-encrusted cover, is written as a copy of the journal of Miss Emily Sands, a fictional amateur Egyptologist. She has mysteriously disappeared along with her group while on an expedition to find the cursed lost tomb of Osiris in 1926.

Brimming with information about Ancient Egypt with lovely interactive features including maps, charts and letters, readers will learn about hieroglyphs, mummification, as well as archaeological guidelines from the 1920s.

Forming part of the highly successful Ologies series of illustrated fantasy books presented in a fictional encyclopaedic format, this is an excellent introduction to this period in history that is guaranteed to get children excited about learning.
