Think that Ancient Egypt is just a load of old obelisks?Don’t bet your afterlife on it.Ancient Egypt should be deader than most of our yesterdays. After all it was at its height 5,000 years ago. Yet we still marvel at its mummies and ponder over its pyramids. It’s easy to forget these people once lived and laughed, loved and breathed … though not for very long.These were dangerous days for princes and peasants alike. In Ancient Egypt – a world of wars and woes, poverty and plagues – life was short. Forty was a good age to reach. A pharaoh who was eaten by a hippo ended up as dead as a ditch-digger stung by a scorpion. Unwrap the bandages and you’ll find that the Egyptians’ bizarre adventures in life were every bit as fascinating as the monuments they left to their deaths.]]>
