內容簡介

英國廣播公司第二電台(BBC 2)節目《不死的埃及:世界最偉大的文明》(Immortal Egypt: the World’s Greatest Civilisation)主持人,也是世界頂尖的埃及學者Joann Fletcher教授所寫的埃及文明史。

本書涵蓋了超過4000年的埃及文明史,介紹有著宏偉建築的地點,史詩故事,充斥著英雄與惡棍、發明家與知識分子、工匠與開拓先鋒的不斷演變的社會。Fletcher教授將古埃及興衰製作成年表,並且將整個古埃及世界放在與我們熟知且可以連結的脈絡當中。

本書揭開了埃及考古的最新發現,從最古老的藝術到開始製作木乃伊的年代比原先一般人知道的時間要往前推2000年,女法老在埃及史上至少出現過10個,證據顯示埃及人是第一個興建蘇彝士運河的民族,他們探索整個非洲大陸,並且在原始的奧運會上獲得勝利。從拉姆西斯二世喜歡將他逐漸灰白的頭髮染上顏色,到第18王朝的農人Baki王子喜歡在床上吃飯…,透過作者的生花妙筆,古埃及的歷史與人物躍然紙上,呈現出我們極少見到的古埃及面貌。


Accompanying the BBC2 series Immortal Egypt – The World’s Greatest Civilisation, this is a fresh look at Ancient Egypt from TV historian and one of the world's leading Egyptologists, Professor Joann Fletcher. 

The story of the world's greatest civilisation spans more than 4000 years of history that has shaped the world. It is full of spectacular sites and epic stories, an evolving society rich in heroes and villains, inventors and intellectuals, artisans and pioneers. Now Professor Joann Fletcher pulls together the complete Story of Egypt - charting the rise and fall of the ancient Egyptians while putting their whole world into a context that we can all relate to. 

Joann Fletcher uncovers some fascinating revelations, from Egypt's oldest art to the beginnings of mummification almost two thousand years earlier than previously believed. She also looks at the women who became pharaohs on at least 10 occasions, and the evidence that the Egyptians built the first Suez Canal, circumnavigated Africa and won victories at the original Olympic games. From Ramses II's penchant for dying his greying hair to how we know Montuhotep's wife bit her nails and the farmer Baki liked eating in bed, Joann Fletcher brings alive the history and people of ancient Egypt as nobody else can.
