Daughters of Isis by Joyce A. Tyldesley
Book DescriptionIn ancient Egypt women enjoyed a legal, social and sexual independence unrivalled by their Greek or Roman sisters, or in fact by most women until the late nineteenth century. They could own and trade in property, work outside the home, marry foreigners and live alone without the protection of a male guardian. Some of them even rose to rule Egypt as 'female kings'. Joyce Tyldesley's vivid history of how women lived in ancient Egypt weaves a fascinating picture of daily life - marriage and the home, work and play, grooming and religion - viewed from a female perspective, in a work that is engaging, original and constantly surprising.

Egypt, Hardback (September 2006)
Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in the late eighteenth century sparked a global fascination with ancient Egyptian culture that remains undiminished to this day. This book tells the full story of the discoveries of treasures that had lain completely hidden and undisturbed for nearly two thousand years.
Hatchepsut, Paperback (January 1998)» View all books by Joyce A. Tyldesley
Hatchepsut was an astonishing woman - defying tradition she became the female embodiment of a male role, dressing in men's clothes and even wearing a false beard. Combining archaeological and historical evidence from a range of sources, this book strips away the myths and misconceptions and restores the female pharaoh to her rightful place.
