What sort of work could job-hunters in Ancient Egypt expect to find? What might their colleagues be like? Ancient Egyptians might become law officers, using sniffer dogs to track down criminals, or professional mourners, paid to throw dust over themselves at funerals. What were the pay and conditions like for a farmer or a scribe in Ancient Egypt? Which were the most dangerous jobs and which the most high status? Throughout the book, job adverts give an idea of the qualities and skills needed for each role and there's a verdict at the end to evaluate whether it was one of the best or worst jobs available. Photographs of artefacts from the period are married with humorous artwork to bring the workers of the era to life.
