|No country on earth boasts a longer recorded history than does Egypt,
the Eternal 'Gift of the Nile' as described by the Greek historian Herodotus (c. 484
- 420 BCE); a statement as true today as it has been through seventy centuries of Egypt's
extraordinary history. The Egyptian civilization was one of the greatest in the ancient
world, and certainly the most long lived, lasting for more than 3000 years, starting c. 3100 BCE and
ending in 30 BCE with the suicide of Cleopatra
VII. Most of the pictures displayed on these pages are of monuments from Egypt's
Pharaonic age which succeeded the Predynastic
period (c. 5500 - 3100 BCE).
May wisdom stand between you and harm in all
the empty places where you must walk.
