In 1560 BC, when Rome was still a marsh and the Acropolis was an empty rock, Egypt was already 1,000 years old. Although the period of the pyramid-builders was long over, Egypt lay on the threshold of its greatest age. The New Kingdom would be an empire forged by conquest, maintained by intimidation and diplomacy, and remembered long after its demise. Led by a dynasty of rich personalities, whose dramatic lives changed the course of civilization, EGYPT'S GOLDEN EMPIRE presents the most extraordinary period in Egyptian history¿from 1560 BC to 1080 BC¿when the Egyptian Empire reached its zenith. Amazingly preserved letters and records bring to life the passion and incomprehensible riches of a time when Egypt was the center of the known world, and its Pharaohs were known as gods. Great cities, temples and tombs were built; and art, education, and technology were propelled to new heights. From Ahmose, Hatshepsut, and Amenhotep III, to Akhenaten, Tutankhamen and Ramesses the Great, EGYPT'S GOLDEN EMPIRE reveals with startling clarity the hopes and dreams of the Pharaohs and ordinary citizens who created the first great empire in history.
