  • Cleopatraby Joyce Tyldesley

  • Ramessesby Joyce Tyldesley

    Penguin Books Ltd 2001; Not Available

    Everyone has heard of Ramesses the Great - but what is the truth behind the legend? Joyce Tyldesley's lively book explores the life and times of Egypt's greatest king.

  • Daughters of Isisby Joyce Tyldesley

    Penguin Books Ltd 1995; Not Available

    In ancient Egypt women enjoyed a legal, social and sexual independence unrivalled by their Greek or Roman sisters, or in fact by most women until the late nineteenth century. They could own and trade in property, work outside the home, marry foreigners and live alone without the protection of a male guardian. Some of them even rose to rule Egypt as... more...

  • Hatchepsutby Joyce Tyldesley

    Penguin Books Ltd 1998; Not Available

    Queen - or, as she would prefer to be remembered King - Hatchepsut was an astonishing woman. Brilliantly defying tradition she became the female embodiment of a male role, dressing in men's clothes and even wearing a false beard. Forgotten until Egptologists deciphered hieroglyphics in the 1820's, she has since been subject to intense speculation about... more...

  • Cleopatraby Joyce Tyldesley

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 11.98

    She was the last ruler of the Macedonian dynasty of Ptolemies who had ruled Egypt for three centuries. Highly educated (she was the only one of the Ptolemies to read and speak ancient Egyptian as well as the court Greek) and very clever (her famous liaisons with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony were as much to do with politics as the heart), she steered... more...

  • Tutankhamen's Curseby Joyce Tyldesley

    Profile Books 2012; US$ 13.31

    Ninety years ago, Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamen's mummy lying, surrounded by grave goods, in a virtually intact tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Egyptology would never be the same again. Tutankhamen's Curse approaches the story of the lost king and his development into a cultural icon with fresh eyes. Stripping away the layers of modern myths... more...

  • Egyptby Joyce Tyldesley

    Ebury Publishing 2010; US$ 12.24

    For nearly two thousand years after the last pharaoh ruled Egypt the wonders of this ancient culture remained hidden, seemingly lost and forgotten for ever. Then, in the late eighteenth century, Napoleons invasion of the country sparked an explosion of interest in ancient Egypt that burns as strongly today as ever. The obsession with anything and... more...
