When how and why?
We know of Egypt as a country in North Eastern Africa where life is concentrated along the lower reaches of the Nile River. What is referred to as Ancient Egypt is the period before 1000 A.D. extending back to about 5000 B.C. when the Sahara region was transforming from savannah to desert with the lakes and rivers drying up.
This forced the population to move and many would have gone into the Nile Valley where many historians say the early civilisation of Egypt came into being as one of six civilizations to arise within what’s referred to as the pre-dynastic period from 5500 to 3000 BC.
Historians tell us that Egyptian civilization coalesced around 3150 BC

The mysteries associated with Egypt
The Pyramid Code is a made-for-television documentary series of 5 episodes made over 2010/2011 and released in 2015/2016 that explores the pyramid fields and ancient temples in Egypt as well as ancient megalithic sites around the world looking for clues to matriarchal consciousness, ancient knowledge and sophisticated technology in a Golden Age.
The series is based on the extensive research done in 25 trips to Egypt and 51 other countries around the world by Dr. Carmen Boulter formerly from the Graduate Division of Educational Research at the University of Calgary in Canada.
Modern archaeological science believes that it has the world nicely understood and that we modern humans have been on earth for some 200,000

A rape game
You may have heard brief mention of this on your local TV news and quickly shut out from your mind. This is a game played by poorly educated young men, they typically gang up on a girl and if they consider they can get away with it, they will sexually molest, tear her clothes off and sometimes rape her.
The current story in the media is that this game is Islamic, but it’s not. It happens all around the world where children are not properly educated and socialised. In the West where kids fear getting into trouble, they seldom go beyond aggravated flirting and touching.
Yet it’s quite common in the world of sport to hear of

The Father of Judaism or a fictional character?

The histories continue to put Moses from about 1300 – 1800BC, however there is no archaeological evidence to support his existence. It is possible that a man with a similar name took a small group of followers into Sinai and those beliefs may have eventually made their way to Canaan. However modern archaeology and genetics clearly defines the modern Israeli and Palestinian population as being descendants of the original Canaanite’s.
The principal story is that Moses took exception to the the fact that the Jewish slaves were being mistreated by the Egyptian masters and convinced them that they could have a better life and led them out of

(القاهرة al-Qāhirah in Aribic) The capital of Egypt and perhaps the worlds most populous city as no one agrees exactly how may people live here, but it is estimated as somewhere between 19 and 25 million. Cairo like many other mega cities has a poor city infrastructure and suffers from high levels of pollution and traffic. The city is on the east bank of the Nile river in northern Egypt 165 kilometers (100 mi) south of the Mediterranean Sea, however this is known as Lower Egypt.
Getting about Ramses Square is the center of almost the entire Egyptian transportation network and Cairo has an extensive road and subway system, but taxis are inexpensive although you can get stuck in traffic.

Travel at your own risk
Over the past year there have been attacks on tourists and a Russian airliner was blown up. This does not mean you should avoid Egypt, but you need to be extra careful. Avoid crowds and keep your wits as women are very susceptible to rape and other crimes.
Home to the remnants of one of the World’s great ancient civilizations and some of the World’s most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and the Great Sphinx, Egypt is an important political and cultural nation of the Middle East and the capital city is Cairo which is near the great pyramids.
Egypt has a good recorded history going back some 3000-4000 where kings and

Covering from 20,000 BC to year 0
For many researchers, this is perhaps the most important period that shaped who we are today. This is when agriculture began to develop and people transitioned from being hunter gatherers to urban dwellers though that is not exactly clear cut.
From the standpoint of most modern historians, the first real sign of civilisation is the anomalous site of Göbekli Tepe and what is left of the later ruins of Babylon. Then from 5000 BC we have the increased desertification across the Middle East and North Africa, and the first beginnings of Egyptian civilisation.
Yet historians seem to deliberately neglect what was happening in India. There is the now famous lion statue discovered in
