This handy guide to Egyptian mythology explores how the ancient Nile-dwellers explained the world around them.
It delves into the origins of life, the creation and evolution of the world, and the reigns of the gods on earth, before introducing us to the manifestations of Egypts deities in the natural environment; the inventive ways in which the Egyptians dealt with the invisible forces all around them; and the trials and tribulations of the life hereafter.
This is the perfect introduction for modern readers to the mysteries of Egyptian mythology.
