Pharaoh's people : scenes from life in Imperial Egypt by T. G. H James ( Book )
25 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and held by 1,683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Popular interest in ancient Egypt has too often tended to focus on the deeds of rulers, great nobles and priests. In Pharaoh's People, T. G. H. James by contrast examines the daily working lives of ordinary Egyptians: bureaucrats and scribes; builders and farmers; carpenters and jewellers. What sort of houses did they live in and how were they furnished? How was justice administered? What do we know about their family relationships, about their rivalries and quarrels, their hopes and dreams and the daily minutiae of their lives? T. G. H. James has drawn on the evidence of paintings and inscriptions from tombs and temples, from official archives, private correspondence, accounts and dispatches. As he reveals the fascinating intricacies of daily life under the pharaohs, we realise how much our own lives have in common with those who worked along the Nile nearly four thousand years ago."--BOOK JACKET

22 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In November 1922, a momentous discovery - unlike any other before or since - was to change our understanding of the ancient world.

Howard Carter's career was a remarkable one: he had arrived in Egypt 30 years earlier as a 17-year old 'tracer' with rudimentary education, and progressed to become the first Chief Inspector of Antiquities in

Temples and Tombs provides readers with an invaluable opportunity to view renowned masterpieces and little-known treasures from the museum's collection. The eighty-five objects featured within these pages span a full range of pharaonic history - from shortly before the Third Dynasty, about 2686 B.C., to the Roman occupation of the fourth century A.D. - and cover each of the four periods into which ancient Egyptian history is divided: Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom, New Kingdom, and the Late Period." "Presented here are a wide variety of objects - sculpture, relief, papyri, ostraca, jewelry, cosmetic objects, and funerary items - in a variety of media, including stone, wood, terra, cotta, gold, glass, and papyrus, each categorized according to its use in ancient culture. From objects made for temples of the gods and funerary monuments, to the objects used daily by artists and nobles and ritual objects concerning death and the afterlife, the treasures collected here are a testament to the rich, vibrant, and captivating culture of the ancient Egyptians."--Book jacket
