About this Recording

ANGUS, D.: Ancient Egypt - The Glory of the Pharaohs (Unabridged)

Ancient Egypt – The Glory of the Pharaohs tells us about civilisation under the pharaohs, of mysterious statues and tombs, incredible obelisks, the pyramids and the Sphinx. In this recording, the ancient Egyptian kingdom is brought to life in a way that fuels the listener’s imagination, teaching and entertaining in equal measure.
