I was walking through Bruges today (that's like walking through my back yard if I see the forest as my front yard Smile ) and stopped by a book shop I usually just pass by. Can u imagine my eyes getting all twinkly when seeing Christiane Ziegler's "The Pharaohs" (Thames & Hudson)? For sensitive readers I won't mention the price though - a little more expensive than buying it from Amazon (shipping inc.). Smile

So I got into the spending spirit and bought two other books in another store (which I will surely start visiting frequently): "Ancient Egypt - A Social History" by Trigger, Kemp, O'Connor & Lloyd (Cambridge University Press) and (this one in dutch) "Deir el-Medina and the Valley of Kings - Pharaoh's Artists" which is the book belonging to an exposition I was dying to see last year, but had to miss out on. At the KMKG (Brussels, also known as the MRAH) they held a 'special' on the town of Deir el-Medina and its inhabitants. Reading the book gives me crying-tendencies to have missed the exposition. I actually found a book by Budge as well, but i have to admit I only held it because it got mentioned in this forum before. Maybe later I'll buy it ("Magic in Ancient Egypt").

Does anyone here know or own Christiane Ziegler's book?

Sure thing. Some time ago (meaning: very long ago) Teleac, a Dutch informative channel televised a series around Romer in the Valley of Kings. It didn't contribute a little bit to my growing interest in Ancient Egypt... Really intruiging series, very interesting man... Guess I must've been around 8 years old, since I couldn't yet understand without subtitles. Smile
