The Ancient Egyptians
By Tim Cooke
At Home With... uses a modern celebrity-magazine style to introduce readers to some of the great characters of history and the periods in which they lived.
Life in the past was in many ways very different from life today, but in one way it was very similar.
There were always some people who were wealthier, more powerful or more famous than everyone else
- and it was those early celebrities who set the fashions of the age and who got tongues wagging with
early celebrity gossip.
At Home With... uses a magazine approach to reveal what fashionable life was like in various societies.
Each book in the series focuses on a highly popular and widely studied period of history. The subjects include famous individuals and their homes, fashions, pastimes, food and drink, ways of getting around - and the must-have possessions of the day.
