    The Ancient Egyptian Regime...

    was even more advanced than we are today. Yes we have technologies, but the ways they adapted to particular situations still outshines the modern world. Everything we know in the modern world the Egyptians knew in some way all those centuries ago. There is some truth to knowing...

    My Logo

    Yes I am an "old man" but let me tell you this. You see a hand gripping a cane. Well Ramses II ruled for more than 60 years and my logo resembles the crook which along with the flail was the symbol of royalty. So If you see my logo it could be "old Ramses grasping the royal crook...

    I Used To Be Dramatic

    When I was in the 7th grade, The Mummy & The Mummy Returns were the FIRST movies I saw that really enriched my thirst to be part of the Egyptian culture. I even bought both its video games and changed my careers to Egyptology or Archeology. During the 8th grade, I was mesmerized...

    I watched a recent programme

    where some scientists have put forward a case that Tutankhamen's tomb was actually for a female - possibly his mother and that there is possibly more of the tomb undiscovered beyond a wall. They are thinking about how to look in there.... could be the discovery to put...

    Ancient History

    It used to be that I didn't really care much for the history and archaeology of ancient Egypt, even though those two subjects have always fascinated me. But over the last couple of years, ancient Egypt has come to fascinate me as well. It is, after all, one of the first human...

    Magic In Ancient Egypt?

    Does anyone believe this? The Bible stories talk about the magicians and how they fought against Israel. Anyone, any comments?

    How We Actually Started To Like Ancient Egypt.

    Well, first of all, we are twins, and we share an account. We are on Middle school and boys think we are weird because we like, I mean, love, Ancient Egypt. Everything started in third grade, when we saw this book (we don't remember It's name) and it was about Ancient Egypt. We...

    Something magical happens the first time you

    hear about ancient Egypt. Maybe you see a mummy movie or visit a museum. Or, like me, a teacher hands you a mysterious worksheet at school. At that moment of discovery, a jolt grips you with intense curiosity. You can't help wondering: who were these people? What did their...

    And I always have been since I was a little kid.  I don't have any idea why or where I got that from because no one else I knew was interested.  I was the geeky kid that would ask to be dropped off at the library and spend hours upon hours pouring over books about King...

    Not exactly sure how you can write a story about you love Ancient Egypt, but it's one of those things that has been with me all of my life.  I'm not exactly an Egyptologist, but I've bought and read a dozen or so books on Egypt, so I know my way around the culture and...

    It Would Be Cooooooooooolll

    To live there would have been mindblowing. I would have loved to paint my face and (if i was one of the royalty) or experience the unique way of life.... the only drawback would be the burying me alive thing.... you'd be damned if I'd go quietly
