Life is good in Egypt: Nubkaure is the third ruler of Dynasty XII to live a long life (ruling 35 years) and to lead the country capably. He despatches fleets to the Levantine coast, where items bearing his name and those of his family are found as far afield as Syria, at Ugarit.
His pyramid complex at Dashur is the source of an incredibly rare find: the intact burials of Princess Ita and Queen Khnumet, both his daughters (Khnumet married Senuseret II, his successor). Their gorgeous funeral jewellery are masterpieces of the art.
The History of Egypt, as they described it, from the Dawn of Civilization to the Fall of the Roman Empire. A tale of love, legend, culture, exploration and war, told through the eyes of the ancients and their stories.
