Egypt by Leonard Cottrell
"[...] after an introduction to the history of Egypt, I shall provide a series of brief chapters describing the better-known, easily accessible places such as the average visitor with limited time is likely to see. In this way the visitor will be able to find relevant information about each place, whether he travels by river from Cairo to Aswan, or merely visits individual sites. This section includes Nubia, the area now doomed to be inundated by the construction of the new High Dam.
"For the benefit mainly of the archaeologically-minded enthusiast who is prepared to stray from the well-beaten track, I have included some monuments not normally on the itinerary of conducted tours, with advice on how to get to such places and what may be seen there."
