    I Am Completely Intrigued By Ancient Egypt...

    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...

    Reading up on Mythology has been one of my

    major hobbies ever since I could remember. Egyptian mythology is my favorite, followed closely by Greek. The history, culture and religion of the ancient Egyptians really fascinate me. I especially love learning about the different Gods (there are like 2000 it is believed), my...

    The Elements.

    You know there are five elements, air, fire, earth and water, and ether, or the ethereal. Well, think about this! The names of the originating gods of Egypt, in one part. The sun god is Atum. He had a son and daughter who married, they were Shu (air) and Tefnut (moisture). Their...

    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...

    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...

    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...
