Rate this:
Written at the request of H.E. Suzanne Mubarak of Egypt, this volume was presented to each of the delegates of the UN's fourth Conference on Women. Hawass, an archaeologist who has done extensive research in his native Egypt, has produced a readable account for the lay reader of the various professions and occupations of women in ancient times, whether as queens, mothers, and wives; their functions at different levels of society; their clothing and adornment; and their role in religion. The superb photographs, reproduced in quality color reproductions, chronicle all types of monuments, great and small, in oversize format (10x12").
