An ancient civilization
Pyramids and mummies, pharaohs and a sphinx: Ancient Egypt was one of the world's earliest civilizations, yet from hieroglyphics and tomb treasures, we know more about it than we do about other early cultures.
It was an agricultural society, heavily dependent on the river for both food and transportation. When a surplus was available, it went into exquisite temples and giant pyramids. Except for the pyramids, that could also describe modern-day Laos. This heavily-illustrated book will intrigue readers of all ages, as it describes a culture sometimes quite similar to, and sometimes utterly different from, that of Laos.
