Description
Egypt Lost and Found chronicles how this amazing culture has been unearthed and translated by archeologists over the past three centuries. From the first account of a journey up the Nile by a Venetian in 1589 to the details of how Jean Francois Campollion cracked the enigma of the hieroglyphs -- revealing unimaginable tales written on the walls of tombs and temples -- this is the story of the rediscovery of ancient Egypt, its monuments and treasures, by European travelers.In chapter after chapter, readers are swept forward into the unknown world of obelisks, monuments, and brilliantly painted walls. Featured also are maps statues, portraits of the explorers and of the people of Egypt, as well as scenes highlighting the magnificence of the landscapes, temples, and pyramids.In this amazing book, author Alberto Siliotti recaptures the excitement and wonder of those early, intrepid explorers and illuminates some of the greatest adventures and discoveries of all time.
