Popular interest in ancient Egypt has too often tended to focus on the deeds of rulers, great nobles, and priests. In Pharaoh's People , T.G.H. James by contrast examines the daily working lives of Egyptians lower down the social scale: bureaucrats, scribes, craftsmen, and workers of the land. James has drawn on the evidence of paintings and inscriptions from tombs and temples, from official archives, private correspondence, accounts, and dispatches. Most of the texts have been newly translated for this book and, in examining them, the author brings to life the fascinating intricacies of daily life under the Pharaohs.
