Introduction to Ancient Egypt and Its Civilization

David P. Silverman

Overview

Just under a hundred years ago, the tomb of King Tutankhamun was discovered in the Valley of the Kings amidst enormous amounts of treasure. The artifacts had survived thousands of years and were in astoundingly good condition. How were the Ancient Egyptians able to preserve so much wealth and beauty so long after they had lost their expansive power?

David P. Silverman is an archeologist and Egyptologist who has penned numerous titles on Ancient Egypt. In this course, Silverman introduces us to the core values of the Ancient Egyptians, especially their focus on the future and the afterlife.

Their strong belief in the idea of regeneration and of existence continuing after death pushed them to build monuments that lived on for centuries. Although Ancient Egypt ended when Cleopatra was overtaken by Roman forces around 40 BCE, it has remained a permanent fixture on the landscape of our globe for centuries.

"In stories composed in the middle kingdom, the Pharaoh Khufu, the builder of the great pyramid is portrayed as an uninformed despot who hardly appears all knowing and all powerful."
