I Love Ancient Egypt

For us,Ancient Egypt is neither a country, nor an extinct culture. It is a passion. 415 People

    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

    Reading up on Mythology has been one of my

    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...

    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...
