Millions of visitors flock to Egypt each year to explore the wonders of this ancient land. What most do not realize is that since their creation, many of the great temples and statues were damaged, and in many cases destroyed by forces from without and within; sometimes by invading armies, or in other cases by pharaohs that wanted to eradicate their predecessors’ achievements. Most of the photos in this book were taken about 100 years ago, prior to what we term Egyptology. This book is a testament to those Egyptian, and foreign experts, as well as workers who have restored what they could of the ancient sites, for us to enjoy and learn from today. Come glimpse back into time. Also, this book is a good guide for those that want to learn about, and/or travel to Egypt and learn in a concise way the history of this ancient land of wonders.
