Journey through Ancient Egypt
Dr. Mamdouh Eldamaty
Egypt is the cradle of human civilization. On its land, migrations of people, traditions, philosophies and religious beliefs succededeach other for thousands of years. Evidence of this succession is still visible in the accumulation of monuments and sites attesting to a uniquely comprehensive cultural heritage. Indeed, one of the phenomena which shaped Egypt's distinctive identity, and explains its pervasive influence on the then known world, was a dynamism that accommodated and re-formulated these successive cultures into one homogeneous and harmonious Egyptian canvas. Egypt is one civilization woven of many strands, threaded by successive and intertwining eras: the Pharaonic, the Graeco-Roman, the Coptic Christian, and the Islamic eras.
During the stages of this long history and the effects of different forms of civilization remained the Egyptian character in a distinctive cultural heritage. We can find the roots and origins of the majority of the phenomena of Science, Arts, Sports, or even traditional behaviors in the Egyptian community influenced by ancient Egyptian civilization, which can be traced in our lives nowadays. Not only this but also it contributed to the Egyptian civilization in influencing a lot of other people and nations through aspects of civilization in various fields such as science and arts...etc.
