Lost Voices of the Nile: Everyday Life in Ancient Egypt

By Charlotte Booth

Amberley Publishing, £20, 304 pages, hardback

Ancient Egypt is best-known as a land of god-like pharaohs and spectacular pyramids, but what was life like for the ‘ordinary’ people? This lively account – drawing on receipts, legal documents, even laundry lists – introduces some of the previously unknown men and women from the period and paints a compelling picture of life in the desert thousands of years ago. And through exploring the lives of characters such as Taimhotep, who asked the revered priest Imhotep to help his wife conceive a son, and the man obsessed with making lists, Kenhirkhopshef, Booth concludes that everyday life for an Ancient Egyptian was not that different from ours today.
