Inhaltsangabe: Step inside an ancient Egyptian building site where one of mankind's most spectacular creations is slowly taking shape. Discover how the Egyptians constructed these vast buildings with such incredible precision, without using wheels, machines or iron tools. Their aim: to preserve their pharaoh not just from tomb robbers, but from death itself. An Egyptian Pyramid is an exciting and superbly-illustrated look at the construction and use of Ancient Egyptian pyramids. Illustrations of artifacts and paintings from the era help to support the main text by providing proof which explains how we know what we know. Informative captions, maps, a complete glossary and an index make these titles ideal educational texts. Each one features a sturdy flexi-bound cover with gold foiling.
