The ancient Egypt is a true mistery and although bits and pieces about the life back then are known, there is still a lot to discover. The ancient Egypt is fascinating and many people travel to the north-east of Africa only with the hope to decipher the mysteries related to that amazing civilization. The ancient Egypt was located in the area where the modern Egypt is located in our time. This civilization reached its peak point in 3150 BC when the first pharaoh of the ancient Egypt unified the Upper and the Lower Egypt. Today, the most famous symbols that remained from the ancient Egyptians are the Great Sphinx and the pyramids of Giza. What makes the ancient Egypt so fascinating is mainly the construction techniques that are still a secret that historians could not find out.
I am a history passionate and the ancient Egypt is one of my favorite topics. This is why I do not miss not even one documentary about the ancient Egypt and I read a lot of books related to it. What I most love about the ancient Egypt is the fact that the people had so interesting beliefs and they easily related to gods. For them, the pharaohs were extremely important and their life was guided by religion, to which they dedicated a lot of monuments and constructions. Their belief in after-life was the one that made them use the mummification technique. Many cultures used it, but this ritual is especially associated with the ancient Egypt.
The shows about ancient Egypt are wonderful and open for me a whole new world of information. I love the shows more than the books, because through them I also have the chance to see beautiful images of today’s Egypt and all kind of renderings on how life in the ancient Egypt must have been. The documentaries depicting the life in the ancient Egypt and the customs of the people that used to live there are incredible and I love to see them. Of course, I hope that one day I will be able to see for myself some of the things that ancient Egyptians left behind.
