Course Description

Mummies, pyramids, pharaohs, hieroglyphs--things you think you know all about, but do you really? Would it surprise you to hear that more cats than people were mummified in ancient Egypt? Or that a pharaoh was considered to be more than just in contact with the gods, but to be a god himself? Egyptian mythology--the basis and reason for all these things--lasted more than four thousand years, something nearly unheard of for religions no longer around today. Come on a journey down the Nile and into one of the most important and fascinating eras in human history. Whether you're inspired by the breathtaking grandeur of the Great Pyramids or puzzled by the pictoral language of the ancient hieroglyph, you'll be surprised by just how relatable and even modern the civilization that produced these ancient wonders really was.

In a bizarre world where hippos and beer become representations of greatness, and the great conquerors of history are melted down into the expanse of another culture's history, every twist and turn offers another revelation. You think you know all about the ancient Egyptians? Think again. And join the legions of people from the last two millennia in pondering over the unique and at times unbelievable lives of the ancient Egyptians and their religion. These are mysteries pondered over by some of the world's greatest scholars, laid out before your eyes in an instructive and entertaining course.
