AUC Press's Description
A rare glimpse at the artifacts and palace of the legendary ruler
Beautiful, mysterious, and tragic, Cleopatra remains one of the most mesmerizing women of all time—and here is her story, based on the latest archaeological research. Written by the inimitable Zahi Hawass in collaboration with underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio, this richly illustrated book chronicles the life of Cleopatra and the centuries-long quest to learn more about the queen and her tumultuous era, the last pharaonic period of Egyptian history. Over the past 15 years, in conjunction with Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, Franck Goddio has explored underwater sites in the vicinity of Alexandria, recovering ancient items that range from portions of an ancient papyrus document thought to have been written in Cleopatra’s own hand and bronze coins with the profile of Cleopatra, to an engraved gold ring with Nike, the goddess of Victory, and a six-ton red granite statue of Hapy, god of the flood of the Nile.
