    Valley of the Kings

    I am fascinated with King Ramses Empire. I have seen some of the art re-creations of KV-5 which is the resting place of King Ramses and his 100+ offspring. The pictures were breathtaking. I love the Mummy movie trilogy and my favorite character was and is "...

    Love To Read About And Watch Documentaries.......

    Ever since I was about 10 or 12 years old I have been fascinated with stories and pictures of ancient Egypt. I don't know what it is, but it seems I just need to know as much as I can about what life was like and so forth, even though I know it had to be rough for everybody...

    Visiting Egypt Is a 'must Do Before You Die'

    I remember the first time I saw the pryamids at Gizza. I spent a whole day there from dawn to dusk taking in the light and sound show that night which was amazing. Nothing though beats the pyramids themselves. To me they are an Axis Mundi. Truely the spirtual world does meet the...

    Be Careful Ancient Egypt Can Be Intoxicating.

    I have been addicted to Ancient Egypt. I like the mysterious nature of her from Narmer to Cleopatra VII. I am fascinated by how the pyramids evolved from simple pits to mastabas to the Step Pyramid of Djodser and the pyramids of Giza. Have any of you heard of Imhotep? A lot has...

    Our great sage and lawgiver was

    once a Prince of Egypt, he knew the wonders and likely travelled throughout the lands of the two kingdoms. His experience of Egypt might have been unique, but his knowledge was of little use to him when he was away from that society. I am fascinated to know more about the Egypt...

    The elementary school I attended actually had

    an Egyptian mummy of a child which they kept in a glass case that we all filed by when going to assemblies. We regarded it with a mixture of fear and fascination, a heady mixture that sparked an attraction in me for Egyptian and other ancient cultures. Unfortunately ancient...

    and August like when au was there - much quieter, but hit 52C in the Valley of the Kings and even I had to admit it was hot!). Saw Cairo, Luxor, Phillae, Karnac and Abu Simbel. Amazing!

    I was always fascinated by ancient Egypt

    and the pyramids. Also, the great queen Cleopatra always intrigued me. Claudette Colbert and Liz Taylor portrayed this beautiful and powerful ruler of Egypt on the silver screen. I might have been her slave in a previous lifetime :), ah...one can only dream :).

    Human Ingenuity Not Aliens!

    I'm constantly amazed how people underestimate the power of human ingenuity. Some academics believe that aliens must have helped them build the pyramids and all of their wonderful engineering wonders. But, I think that's damn insulting. Given enough time, even water cans...

    I've just started watching a series on Netflix

    called "The Pyramid Code". They are theorising (among other ideas) that the pyramids were built to be resonating chambers, each set to a different frequency and the ancient Egyptians used sound healing. Apparently there's also no evidence that they were used as burial chambers...

    I just walked around the section in the British

    Museum with my mouth agape, similarly in the Metropolitan. What did these people have in mind? The society was based on gods and slaves, and the burial arrangements were fabulous. The removal of organs was barely credible.
