Purports to be the journal of Emily Sands during her travels in Egypt in 1926 to find the lost tomb of Osiris. Based on real Egyptology, each chapter covers a different place in Egypt. Who can resist the allure of ancient Egypt-and the thrill of uncovering mysteries that have lain hidden for thousands of years? Not the feisty Miss Emily Sands, who in 1926, four years after the discovery of King Tut's tomb, led an expedition up the Nile in search of the tomb of the god Osiris. Alas, Miss Sands and crew soon vanished into the desert, never to be seen again. But luckily, her keen observations live on in the form of a lovingly kept journal, full of drawings, photographs, booklets, foldout maps, postcards, and many other intriguing samples. Here are just a few of Egyptology's special features: an extravagantly gilded cover, featuring a raised Horus hawk pendant with three encrusted gems, a playable game of Senet-ancient Egyptian checkers-including board, pieces, original-style dice, and rules, a souvenir booklet showing how to read simple hieroglyphs, a scrap of textured "mummy cloth", a facsimile of the gilded mummy mask of King Tut, a gilded eye-of-Horus amulet with a "jewel" at the end. Rich with information about life in ancient Egypt and peppered with Miss Sands's lively narration, Egyptology concludes with a letter from the former Keeper of Antiquities at the British Museum, explaining which parts of this unique tale may be accepted as fact, which are guided by legend, and which reflect the author's delightful sense of fancy.… (mais)

"Rich with information about life in ancient Egypt and peppered with Miss Sands's lively narration, EGYPTOLOGY concludes with a letter from the former Keeper of Antiquities at the British Museum, explaining which parts of this unique tale may be accepted as fact, which are guided by legend, and which reflect the author's delightful sense of fancy." Based upon the idea of diary left behind by the protagonist Miss Sand. An engineered book with plenty of interaction.

I bought this from New Jersey. I remember flipping through it in the plane to California so many times! I love anything about Egypt! This book is amazing! Actually the whole series is amazing! ( )

Egyptology is a beautifully constructed book. My favorite part about the book is that each page is constructed like a scrapbook. For example, when the process of mummification is being described, there is a sample piece of cloth that the Ancient Egyptians would have used during the mummification process. It was great to be able to feel the cloth that was used because it gives you a sense of what some of the instruments and tools were like in Ancient Egypt. I really liked how each page of the book presented the reader with a riddle to solve. The images and descriptions on each page gave you clues to finding the answer to the riddle. For example, one riddle was “What goes on four feet in the morning, two feet at noon, and three feet in the evening?” The reader would then have to look for clues on the page to help them find the answer.
While Egyptology was a fun interactive book for the reader, its main purpose or big idea was to inform the reader on Ancient Egyptian culture. All the facts and statements in the book were true and each was extremely informative. ( )
