    Well Versed

    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...

    Hello. My name is Lazaro. I am 48. When I was very young, around 7. I became aware and felt reconnected to Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra starring Elizabeth Taylor was on TV one night, and I remember feeling a jolt whenever I heard the word Egypt in the movie. I think my mother noticed...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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
