Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt introduces readers to three thousand years of Egypt’s ancient history by unveiling its famous leaders—the pharaohs—using some of the finest objects from the vast holdings of the British Museum. Beautifully illustrated, this exhibition catalogue, published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same title, contains 180 color photographs of monumental sculpture, architectural pieces, funerary objects, exquisite jewelry, and papyri. Through in-depth essays and recent academic analysis, this publication looks at the myths, the realities, and the immense challenges of ruling one of the greatest civilizations the world has seen.
