Egypt In The Age Of The Pyramids

Essays by Rita E. Freed, Joyce L. Haynes, Yvonne J. Markowitz.

The age of the pyramids, or Old Kingdom period, was Egypt's crowning moment, known to many as its Golden Age. It was a time when kings and queens commanded stone to be turned into architectural marvels, the human figure to be immortalized, and exquisite furnishings and jewelry to be fashioned for this life and the one beyond the tomb. One of the world's premier collections of Old Kingdom art belongs to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, but never before have highlights from the collection been presented together in a single, lavishly-illustrated volume. Nor have many of the fascinating archival photographs of the excavations that unearthed these objects been published as they are here. Egypt in the Age of the Pyramids provides a glimpse of life--and death--at the pinnacle of Egyptian civilization, as well as the excitement of the first excavators who discovered its treasures.
