    review Ramesses Egypt's Greatest Pharaoh 100 Ramesses Egypt's Greatest PharaohJoyce Tyldesley has written a great book on one of the most famous pharaohs of ancient Egypt She includes information on life in the Nile region for the time period as well as on people who surrounded the king As I am finding with some of the history books I have read lately maps could have been plentiful and detailed and pictures of artifacts and locations could have been in color Nonetheless the book was uite good and informative

    review Ramesses Egypt's Greatest Pharaoh 100 Ramesses Egypt's Greatest PharaohI felt it was a little to digressive and could have been clearer That being said I understand it's hard to create a narrative with the evidence we have it just jumped around too much But I did learn things
