La voix des hiéroglyphes

Author(s): Christophe  Barbotin, Didier  Devauchelle

€ 35.00 tax included

What if we listened to the voice of the Egyptians themselves rather than speaking in their place about what life was like in Ancient Egypt? The first of its kind, this book invites you to meet and listen to the Egyptians on a tour through the dedicated rooms at the Louvre. Was death thus the primary focus of such a happy and articulate people?
