Danielle (bestofqueen) | 2 comments I got this book out of the school library a lot when i was in the 5th grade (2005)
I remember it being a non-fiction hardback book (and well used, thus the date range), having a dark mustard yellow cover, I think the binding was sort of threaded, and a photograph of king tut's sarcophagus on the cover of the book. It was a thicker book too. It went over the basic history of ancient Egypt (including kings) and towards the end I think it went over current day findings. I also remember a picture of the Nile in it.
Thank you to anyone that can help! I have a strange bond with this book.

Serendi Barbara Mertz, who wrote fiction as Barbara Michaels and Elizabeth Peters, was an Egyptologist who wrote two popular books under her own name, Red Land, Black Land: Daily Life in Ancient Egypt and Temples, Tombs & Hieroglyphs: A Popular History of Ancient Egypt. Could it be either of those?

(Hadn't realized she recently passed away; met her a couple of times about thirty years back.)

Tytti | 190 comments Aah, I know this one, maybe..! Though it was more about the King Tut... Unfortunately the book is at my childhood home. Maybe I remember ask/search for it when I have more time.
