Full description for Pharaoh's People
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. What sort of houses did they live in and how were they furnished? What do we know about their family relationships, their rivalries and quarrels 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.
