Welcome to ancient Egypt in the reign of Ramesses the Great. More reliable than Herodotus and more upbeat than The Book of the Dead,this is the essential guide for the discerning time-traveller. This entertaining guide book takes the reader to Ancient Egypt in the time of Ramesses II (1250 BC).

Egyptologist Donald Ryan guides the time-travelling tourist on a journey up the Nile, taking in the sights of Memphis, the pyramids, Thebes and beyond. En route he offers useful advice on everything from deciphering hieroglyphics to deciding which god to petition in the event of a scorpion sting.

So leave the protective amulets at home and banish all fear of being sold as a galley slave – this imaginative guide is all you need to survive and enjoy your visit to Egypt in its golden age of Empire.
