[Ebook] ➪ 24 Hours in Ancient Egypt: A Day in the Life of the People Who Lived There ➩ Donald P. Ryan – Ralphslaurensoutlet.co.uk

Koncept knjige me je zaista odusevio Pisac je uspio kroz 24 kratka poglavlja opis svakog sata i 24 razlicite osobe tog vremena da nam priblizi zivot u starom Egiptu Mislim da neke knjige koje imaju mnogo vise stranica nisu uspjele da ispricaju sve ono sto je Donald uspio sa ovom knjigom Zaista fantasticno djelo koje preporucujem svima koje zanimaju historija i stare civilizacije. From Pharohs to brick layers,each chapter is an hour in the life of an Ancient Egyptian I did not want this book to end, it was so well written Engaging readhighly recommended.

Ancient Egypt has ever since the 19th century been a source of fascination for both academics as the big public with perhaps the exception of the Roman empire and WW2, no historic subject has achieved the same amount of interest, research funds, museum space, documentaries, books, comics, toys and video games Why that is, is a bit perplexing for me, it surely must have something to do with the discovery of Tutanchamun tomb, the problem Egypt posed for those who claimed Africa made no contribut Ancient Egypt has ever since the 19th century been a source of fascination for both academics as the big public with perhaps the exception of the Roman empire and WW2, no historic subject has achieved the same amount of interest, research funds, museum space, documentaries, books, comics, toys and video games Why that is, is a bit perplexing for me, it surely must have something to do with the discovery of Tutanchamun tomb, the problem Egypt posed for those who claimed Africa made no contributions to world history and off course the pyramids who stand long after the other supposed wonders of the world have crumbled back tot the dirt 24 hours in ancient Egypt takes readers back to the 18th dynasty, the reign of farao Amenhotep II and that in itself is peculiar choice For he is definitively not one of the famous faroa s so something of a bold choice when selecting the time period for this 24 hours glimpse of Egyptian life In fact one of the recurring aspects of the book is how many compare him to his predecessors Hapsjetsut and Thutmoses III and note how he falls short So why him I must say I am not sure but I do like anything that refuses to confirm to expectations Not that it matters that much though The book as said presents us with 24 hours starting at midnight we get one hour in the life of both historical figures but evenfictional characters like a farmer, a mourner, dancing girl, a brickmaker and so on whose lives changed off course but unlike the court officials were not as linked to the Farao as to the extent that their lives changed dramatically when he was replaced But I know what you are thinking is this a book for mass entertainment Yes but in the best kind of way The book is in its ow way a bundle of 24 short stories who all take place in the same location Thebes same day in 1414 BC and adhere to the six degrees of separation hypothesis It truly brings ancient Egypt back to live if but for one day Every story tells and shows oneaspect of the lives of ancient Egypt ranging from the amount of dental problems Egyptians had due to the amount of grit in their bread to the knowledge available to their doctors Even if at times the tension of the story got a but overwhelmed by the wishes of the author to share information, it never did got the point that it became a text book Unless one takes into account the information boxes every chapters has like 5 of them where the author added some extra information that could not be written into the story because it would not make narratively sense for the characters to discuss them or because it is from modern times At times we get like a jump to the future for example in the hour of the Farao s wife, she is annoyed by Amenhotep s collection of pet baboons, added to that is mention of a tomb found near Amenhotep s filled with mummified baboons and the question where they perhaps beloved pets or ritual animals I would say this to be essential reading for anyone who is interested in ancient Egypt in particular the new kingdom and a great example of how to make historic informationaccessible to the wider audience I can t help but be reminded of the great thing Ubisoft did with their game set in Ptolemaic Egypt, the discovery mode Toto bolo pr jemn prekvapenie aj ke

while I can understand the challenges of documenting the lives of ordinary ancient Egyptians largely illiterate society, houses made of degradable materials as opposed to the lasting stone used for tombs and temples , I think I would have preferred that the author give me his best guess with a footnote saying we re not sure on this one , instead of being treat Still liked it, but less than the Rome volume The stories revolved mucharound the super high class than the everyday people, and while I can understand the challenges of documenting the lives of ordinary ancient Egyptians largely illiterate society, houses made of degradable materials as opposed to the lasting stone used for tombs and temples , I think I would have preferred that the author give me his best guess with a footnote saying we re not sure on this one , instead of being treated to not super interesting looks into the lives of the pharaoh, his wife, his vizier, and his high priest Still fun, though DNF at just over half way.As so little is known about daily life in ancient Egypt compared withrecent ancient cultures this format didn t work particularly well I also found the tenses the author used to be very jarring as they jumped around often, sometimes even within the same paragraph.I look forward to continuing this series with 24 hours in Ancient Greece as I enjoyed the Rome installment so much Sadly this one just didn t work for me. 24 Hours in Ancient Egypt: A Day in the Life of the People Who Lived There
