An essential guide for the discerning time-traveller: take a trip to ancient Egypt at the height of its power and prosperity in the reign of Ramesses II.

More reliable than Herodotus and more upbeat than 
The Book of the Dead, this popular book in Thames & Hudson’s successful Time Travel series takes the reader to Ancient Egypt in the time of Ramesses II (1250BC).

Egyptologist Donald Ryan guides the time-travelling tourist on a journey up the Nile, and en route he offers useful advice on everything from deciphering hieroglyphics to mummifying household pets. So leave the protective amulets at home and banish all fear of being sold as a galley slave – this imaginative guide is all you need to survive and enjoy your visit to Egypt in its golden age.
