    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...

    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...

    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...

    Meteorites

    Meteorites were very important to ancient Egyptians, they created jewelry from meteorites by hammering it into shape making beads and other designs. The jewelry was often buried with loved ones.

    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...
