Egypt?s Golden Empire presents the most extraordinary period in Egyptian history: from 1570 BC to 970 BC, when the Egyptian Empire reached its zenith. In 1570 BC, when Rome was still a marsh and the Acropolis was an empty rock, Egypt was already 1,000 years old. Although the period of the pyramid-builders was long over, Egypt lay on the threshold of its greatest age. The New Kingdom would be an empire forged by conquest, maintained by intimidation and diplomacy, and remembered long after its demise. Egypt?s Golden Empire reveals with startling clarity the hopes and dreams of the Pharaohs and ordinary citizens who created the first great empire in history.
