Pyramid Builders of Ancient Egypt

$15.00

A Modern Investigation of Pharaohs Workforce
by Dr A Rosa David

...[T]he book is a valuable introduction to the study of ancient Egyptian daily life that will certainly repay careful reading and study. Pleasant, compact, and easy to read, the book strikes a good balance between a strictly scholarly and a more general approach. Now in a more affordable paperback format, this book is certain to attract a broad readership.
-Journal of the American Oriental Society

In this engrossing detective story, Rosalie David uncovers a fascinating picture of Kahun, a pyramid workmens' town excavated in 1887. In David's hands, the Egyptian builders of the pyramids are revealed as simple people, leading ordinary lives while they are engaged in building the great tomb for a Pharaoh. They worry about their families, grumble about the quality of the food, cheat overseers, even plan a strike for better conditions. Gone are the whip-driven slaves of the popular image: in their place are skilled workers knowing the value of their labor.

Hardback, 269pages, 1986,very good condition
