Greenwood Press,
Pub. Date:
After providing historical context for the building of the still-admired pyramids, Hellum (U. of Auckland, New Zealand), who has excavated in various parts of Egypt, discusses their key role in ancient Egyptian religion and how they were built and decorated. Though she mentions the Egyptian system of forced labor, she does not mention Hebrew slaves as being among the labor pool. The volume includes a timeline of Egyptian dynasties and kings, a map of the Old Kingdom, pyramid profiles, a glossary, lightly annotated bibliography, and illustrations.
