Egyptian Games and Sports by Joyce A. Tyldesley

Book Description

The Ancient Egyptian enjoyed a wide range of sports and games - young men chased lions and ostriches across the desert, while dignified married couples relaxed over a game of 'senet'. Children played with balls and dolls. Even the Egyptian kings took their own sporting prowess very seriously - as living demi-gods they were expected to dominate the sports field just as they dominated every other sphere of Egyptian life.

Chronicle of the Queens of Egypt by Joyce A. Tyldesley Chronicle of the Queens of Egypt, Hardback (October 2006)

Presents the history of queenship in ancient Egypt, revealing the essential role played by women in the royal household.

Egypt by Joyce A. Tyldesley 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 by Joyce A. Tyldesley Hatchepsut, Paperback (January 1998)

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.

Daughters of Isis by Joyce A. Tyldesley Daughters of Isis, Paperback (March 1995)

In 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. This book presents a picture of daily life - marriage and the home, work and play, grooming and religion - viewed from a female perspective.
