RED LAND, BLACK LAND Daily Life in Ancient Egypt

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lorna Raver

History • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1964

Lorna Raver immerses herself in renowned Egyptologist Barbara Mertz's fascinating and exquisitely detailed account of daily life in ancient Egypt. In a pleasantly modulated voice, with plenty of high drama and frequent witticisms, and no hints of pedantry, Raver takes us back thousands of years and introduces us to Egyptians of many strata—pharaohs, queens, painters, slaves, scribes, temple builders—showing us their everyday ways of life with respect to marriage, birth, food, beer, wine, orgies, rituals, clothing, sexual practices, religion, the construction of magnificent temples and tombs, and beliefs regarding the afterlife. Be forewarned, this is a long production, but it’s never boring. In fact, the time seems to fly by. M.T.B.
