The story of the world's greatest civilisation spans 9000 years of history that has shaped the world. It is full of spectacular sites and epic stories, an evolving society rich in inventors, heroes, heroines, villains, artisans and pioneers. Now Professor Joann Fletcher pulls together the complete Story of Egypt - charting the rise and fall of the ancient Egyptians while putting their whole world into a context that we can all relate to. Joann Fletcher uncovers some fascinating revelations: new evidence shows that women became pharaoh on at least 10 occasions, and the ancient Egyptians even built the first Suez Canal and circumnavigated Africa. From Ramses II's penchant for dying his grey hair, to how we know Montuhotep's chief wife bit her nails, Joann Fletcher brings alive the history and people of ancient Egypt as nobody else can.
