One of the most intriguing civilizations to have existed over the past few thousand years is one that still fascinates us today. Today’s Family First Site pays a visit to the British Museum, which features a state-of-the-art website that helps to explain that society and some of the day-to-day activities that occurred then.
The site is called Ancient Egypt. Here you can explore the land of the pharaohs and be entertained while learning a thing or two on the way. You can find out what life was really like in those times, from the building of mud houses to farming to being a scribe. You can explore the Pyramids, find out about the Gods and Goddesses that were worshipped, and how they were worshipped. You can also learn about the various occupations and trades that were there, as well as the hieroglyphic writings that have fascinated and puzzled scientists for years.
This is a great educational site, one that is timely since most kids are now cramming for finals or looking for a topic for that last paper. Interest in the Egypt is running high, especially with the recent examination of King Tut on a cat scanner, which revealed many secrets about him that were previously unknown.
