From Our Editors

If nothing else, the Egyptians were efficient. With the simplest of tools -- and a lot of manpower -- they built the pyramids, ancient structures still standing today. But they weren't just good at physical labour. They also developed a system for counting a measuring, the kind of system we still use today. Science in Ancient Egypt describes these fascinating feats and others.
