Author: Charlotte Booth
Format: ARC eBook

This was a fascinating book. How to survive in Ancient Egypt takes you back in time as a visitor of ancient Thebes during 1360 BCE. This is the 18th dynasty, during the reign of Amenhotep III, and is known as the glory days of Egypt.
This book paints a picture of what life was like for the everyday person during this time, not the royalty. This was a fascinating perspective about how people lived, worked, ate, along with so many other things. I learned so much from this book because all of the books I have read on Egypt have been about kings and queens.
Here are a few of the topics covered in this book: medicine, contraception, birth, bathing, perfume, professional mourners, games, and crime and punishment.
Overall, this was a fascinating and informative book. I totally recommend this book if you are interested in ancient Egypt, history, or how ancient people lived.
