The Great Pyramid is a lively place to work. The only irritation is Antef, the fussy, bullisome supervisor who makes everyone feel more like slaves than free workers: so much so that they end up going on strike to protest against him! When Antef disappears, the workers are blamed. The only witness is Dafia, but she stays silent to protect her father. However, she decides to come up with a plan to clear the men's names, and the only way to do that is to prove that Antef is alive. But how?

If one man laughs I will have him taken to the top of the pyramid and thrown off! Now h-e-a-v-e!” King Amenemhat said to a servant, “Send Antef to me.” The servant hurried off and brought the little work-driver back. Antef held

He looked more like a girl called Nephoris hugging her father Yenini. Maybe it was … Chapter 6 Beard Wigs and Earwigs Nephoris walked home, arm in arm with her father, over the fields.
