Nearly 5,000 years ago, a great and powerful empire emerged from the fertile silt along the Nile River. Colossal temples and monuments rose from the surrounding desert plateaus and valleys. Miraculously preserved human bodies were sealed away with untold riches in mysterious hidden tombs. Strange markings, the archaic symbols of an advanced bygone civilization revealed animal headed gods, powerful kings, and mighty warriors. Get ready to discover the fascinating world of the ancient Egyptians.

Uncover the incredible secrets of ancient Egypt:

  • How were Mummies prepared for their epic journey into the afterlife? The bizarre rituals and grisly methods of ancient embalming may shock you!
  • How in the world could such an early civilization engineer and erect gargantuan monuments like the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, or the temple at Karnak?

  • Evidence shows that Egyptians accurately predicted eclipses, floods and even created the first solar calendar to record the passage of time. Could these early astronomers actually use the stars to measure time and space?
  • What happened when then when someone got sick, broke a bone, or got a cavity? Ancient Egyptians were among the first physicians, but often their cures were just as life-threatening!

The Story of Ancient Egypt explores over 3,000 years of Egyptian history, from the early development of farming communities that spawned along the fertile Nile River, to the soaring temples and monuments of New Kingdom imperial Egypt.

Each chapter is followed by a short quiz, additional discussion points, and suggested activities to delve further into the mysteries of ancient Egypt.
