These two classic works by Barbara Mertz, now revised for a new generation, give students a fascinating glimpse into the human side of ancient Egypt.
Both now available in paperback from Harper paperbacks. Red Land, Black Land. Temples, Tombs, and Hieroglyphs.
“Dr. Mertz has put her considerable writing talent to use in unraveling the twists and turns of the dynasties and makes the broad sweep of Egyptian history understandable and engaging. There is nothing to equal it for a good grounding in ancient Egypt.”— Peter Lacovara, Senior Curator of Ancient Egyptian, Nubian and Near Eastern Art, Michael C. Carlos Museum, Emory University
Barbara Mertz has Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago’s famed Oriental Institute.
