Summary
Ancient Egyptian civilization is so grand that our minds sometimes have difficulty adjusting to it. The most advanced of any ancient civilization, Egypt's ancient kingdom lasted for 30 centuries, longer than any other, yet today, it remains one of the most mysterious. Home of the only one of the Eight Wonders of the Ancient World still standing, the Great Pyramid of Cheops was the tallest building in the world until well into the 1800s. This course chronologically surveys 3,000 years of recorded Egyptian history, from unification in 3100 BC through the death of Cleopatra in 30 BC
