Publisher's Summary

When we think of Ancient Egypt, we picture movies with mazes, pyramids, traps, mummies, and symbols. And although some of these things were definitely part of it, there is so much more to this ancient civilization.

Ancient Egypt was a North African society that grew in the lower banks of the Nile River, in what's now the nation of Egypt. Following Ancient Egypt, old Egyptian civilization culminated circa 3100 BC (according to basic Egyptian chronology) with Menes' political marriage of Upper and Lower Egypt (usually related to Narmer). The Old Kingdom of the Early Bronze Age, the Middle Kingdom of the Middle Bronze Age, and the New Kingdom of the Late Bronze Age formed a series of steady kingdoms split up by periods of relative instability called Intermediate Durations.

Let’s explore some of the most important features of that society today, and try to grasp what transpired in the culture, the thoughts, the problems, and the development of the Egyptian region more than 5,000 years ago.

Nothing about obelisks

Nothing about obelisks. Catfished! It was a good crash course, broad overview of AE, but nothing more and it did not live up to the title.
