Description

Travel back in time to a civilization that lasted over 3,000 years. Knowledge of this splendid culture comes to us through significant archaeological finds, such as royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings, which contained not only mummies, but exquisite artifacts as well. The discovery of the Rosetta Stone eventually led to the decoding of Egyptian hieroglyphics. Ancient Egypt still holds many mysteries. Share the excitement of the scientists who are in the field today, working to unlock the secrets of Egypt's past.
