5 stars - I loved it! This is a wonderful collection of photographs of Ancient Egypt from each period of their history. It featured well known monuments, some not so well known, and even a few new discoveries. I really loved all the different photographs within this book, especially since this book also covers monuments from the Greco-Roman period with the Ptolemy's. I feel I rarely get to see images from his period so it was wonderful seeing what was included in this book. Overall, this was a wonderful collection of photographs from Ancient Egypt. I highly recommend this book if you love Egypt.
Beautiful pictures of antiquities from different time periods in Egyptian history, paired with brief captions explaining each and piquing the reader's curiosity. If you’re looking for in depth information on the sites in the photographs, this isn’t the book you’re looking for, but it is the perfect jumping off point. The author includes a good mix of both well-known and more obscure locations and items, making this a unique collection, perfect for the coffee tables of just about anyone on your gift list, from armchair travellers to history buffs. I'm grateful to Netgalley and Amber Books for the opportunity to read and review Ancient Egypt: The Cradle of Civilization.
