The story of the ancient world is told in this first volume in a two-book series on the history of Egypt, spanning the first farmers to the construction of the pyramids. Famed archaeologist John Romer draws on a lifetime of research to tell one history's greatest stories; how, over more than a thousand years, a society of farmers created a rich, vivid world where one of the most astounding of all human-made landmarks, the Great Pyramid, was built. Immersing the reader in the Egypt of the past, Romer examines and challenges the long-held theories about what archaeological finds mean and what stories they tell about how the Egyptians lived. More than just an account of one of the most fascinating periods of history, this engrossing book asks readers to take a step back and question what they've learned about Egypt in the past.

A very readable book that I enjoyed quite a bit. This book is devoted almost entirely to the pre-history of ancient Egypt, ending with the building of Khufu's Great Pyramid at Giza.

I am looking forward to reading the recently released 2nd volume of this series.
