Preface by Zahi Hawass
Ancient Egypt's cultural wealth has always bedazzled the
world.  Truly a land of plenty, her vast resources during
her glorious years as the kingdom of the pharaohs live
today as the artifacts that give humankind a permanent
record of the greatness of the ingenious people that lived
on the banks of the Nile: this immensely important story is
the one told by the treasures in the Egyptian Museum in
Cairo, one of the greatest collections in the world.  In fact,
whenever I enter the garden of the museum, even before I
enter the building itself, I can feel the power of the
beautiful artifacts and the magic of ancient Egypt.  The
museum contains the smell and feel of a glorious past, and
I can see the glimmer of ancient light shining in the eyes of
the museum's statues.

... The temples, tombs, and artifacts of ancient Egypt are
fitting monuments to its power and wealth.  From the
grandeur and sheer audacity of the Great Pyramid at Giza
to the elegance of the finely-crafted statues found in
temple caches, the legacy of the pharaohs has provided us
with a rich source of knowledge about the distant past and
one of the world's first great civilizations.  Visiting the
museum with this illustrated guide is like experiencing a
personalized adventure in the splendid world of the
pharaohs.
