Experience the mysteries of ancient Egypt from the perspective of those who lived there. The ancient Egyptians left us a varied record of their hopes, fears, and desires, including the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great, and much more. Through art, poetry, history, and archaeology, we will examine life, love, and death along the banks of the Nile. Beware the crocodiles!
