Ancient Egyptian History & Geography
Ancient Egyptian History and Geography give us a good look at a culture that was shrouded in mystery up until the early 20th century.
Over 3,000 years of relative continuity! Of course, during that long period of time, the ancient Egyptians were subjected to numerous invasions – from the Persians, to the Greeks, to the Romans.
In 3100 BC, the nomadic tribes of hunter-gatherers settled on the Nile Valley and then unified as one country. That’s when we can really begin our journey of discovering ancient Egyptian history!
Thanks to the Rosetta Stone, which helped historians translate hieroglyphics – the mysterious ancient culture of Egypt could finally be studied.
After each new discover is made, which happens quite often, ancient Egyptian history is changed just a little bit. And so no matter how much we read or learn about this long-ago past, it still somehow remains slightly hidden.
No amount of scientific research has been able to take away from its magic and mystery.
