A New Dawn: Treasures of Ancient Egypt by BBC Worldwide Learning
Publication Date: 2014
A New Dawn is an epic adventure through Ancient Egypt, in which journalist and art critic Alastair Sooke tracks down the treasures of the longest-lasting civilization in history and uncovers the true story of their rise and fall throughout the ages. Stepping aside from the well-worn usual cliches of this era, in A New Dawn he discovers how Egypt’s unique melting pot of geography and culture created some of the most remarkable treasures the world has ever seen. Specifically he shows the Nubian and Hellenistic influences on late Egyptian art.
