Egypt, the fabled land of romance, intrigue, mystery, and terror, but above all fabulous wealth and glittering gold. Ever since Napoleon's invasion in the 1790s and the incredible discovery of Tutankhamen's intact tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922, the world has been increasingly drawn to books, films, museums and exhibitions that focus on the land of the Pharaohs. Through the pages of this travel guide you are invited, from the comfort of your home, or in Egypt itself, to discover some of the many wonders that the land contains.
This guide is predominantly concerned with biblical and Christian history, but also gives a flavour of other times and personalities. We invite you to travel through Egypt with Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Jeremiah, and Joseph, Mary and the infant Jesus, along with other famous people of history, to discover events that have shaped history and caused generations to wonder about the land that lies either side of the River Nile.
