Reviews

Scholarly, passionate and exquisitely written ... a stunning, clear-sighted history of ancient Egypt -- James McConnachie * Sunday Times *
It is not easy to enliven prehistory while simultaneously respecting limited archaeological evidence and avoiding novelistic pitfalls. But Romer manages it ... After a long wait, we have an up-to-date, stimulating account of the birth of what may turn out to be the world's oldest civilization -- Andrew Robinson * Nature *
His physical descriptions are superb ... a book to be read and thought about -- John Ray * Financial Times *
Romer carries the reader along effortlessly on a lengthy, complex yet immensely satisfying journey -- Joyce Tyldesley * BBC History *
