Ancient Egypt Reference Guide
People from Africa, Palestine and Syria began to settle along the Nile River in Egypt about 5000 years ago. Over the time, they developed a civilisation and ways of living that remained important for 3000 years.
They developed new techniques for farming and watering the land and a form of picture writing which was used to record their way of life and their spiritual beliefs.
It is only in the last 200 years that the achievements of this Ancient Egyptian civilization have been rediscovered and appreciated.
Today, people travel from all over the world to see the magnificent statues, monuments and pyramids that the ancient Egyptians built to honor their gods and their leaders.
The treasures that have been discovered help us to understand life in the land of the pharaohs thousands of years ago.
