The Mysteries of Abu SimbelThe Mysteries of Abu Simbel: Ramesses II and the Temples of the Rising Sun The temples of Abu Simbel have fascinated travellers since they became known to the Western world in the 19th century. Since the 1960s when the rising waters created by the Aswan High Dam threatened to engulf the site, visitors' imaginations have been captivated by the elaborate international rescue operation. This text features: a brief, clear history of the ancient kingdom of Nubia and its relationship with Egypt; description and explanation of the High Dam project; extensive details of the salvage operation of the temples at Abu Simbel; a biography of Ramesses II; and descriptions of the artistic highlights in the temples.

RamessesRamesses: Egypt's Greatest Pharaoh Ramesses II was the most powerful king ever to rule Egypt, well known for his profusion of wives, Egyptian beauties, foreign princesses, and even his own daughters, who gave him children numbered in three figures. But among the royal wives, the only title which mattered was that of Great Royal Wife. Only four women held this title, two of them being blood relatives of the king. This book introduces the reader to the world of high politics and international intrigue which were part of the very fabric of life in the court of Ramesses, and to the opulent existence of the aristocratic elite.

Ancient Egypt and NubiaAncient Egypt and Nubia (Ashmolean Handbooks S.) This title presents a comprehensive visual selection of the Ashmolean's collections of artefacts from Ancient Egypt and Nubia, reflecting the range of media and artistic styles used in over 5000 years of Egyptian Craftsmanship.
