This brief, introductory history course will take you on a journey into the wonders of ancient Egypt as you discover why ancient Egypt is the legend that it is.
Learners will be exposed to the magnificent accomplishments and contributions that Egypt has made to civilization from Ancient times to today.
We will examine the role of Egyptian women and their positions as monarchs and goddesses, the invention of papyrus and Egypt’s first writings as well as ancient Egypt’s achievements in medicine.
There will also be a brief summary of the famous architecture of ancient Egypt including pyramids, tombs and temples.
Because this is an introductory course, no knowledge of history or Egyptology is required. Our aim is to spark learners’ interest in the study of ancient Egypt.
