    Ancient Egypt is a vast subject and depending on your interest, you can find books on the daily life in ancient Egypt, specific Pharoahs, archaeological finds…..

    Also the Pharonic period spans +/- 2,000 years…..almost everyone in the ancient world conquered or tried to conquer eqgypt at some point…from the assyrians, phonecians, greeks, romans, persians, nubians……walk into a bookstore and browse various books and see which subject/people interest you the most….
