Colossal pyramids, imposing temples, golden treasures, enigmatic hieroglyphs, powerful pharaohs, strange gods, and mysterious mummies are features of Ancient Egyptian culture that have fascinated people over the millennia. The Bible refers to its gods, rulers, and pyramids. Neighboring cultures in the ancient Near East and Mediterranean wrote about its god-like kings and its seemingly endless supply of gold. The Greeks and Romans describe aspects of Egypt's culture and history.

來自WONDERS OF ANCIENT EGYPT的熱門評論
Love this course! I've been obsessed with Egyptology my whole life and after taking both of Dr. Silverman's courses I feel I have a much greater understanding of the mystic civilization!
It is a great second part of the series of courses about Egypt from Prof. David. Silverman. Highly recommend the course to all those who found value in the first course from the same professor.
Detailed introduction to Egyptian art; not too time-consuming; not overly focused on ruins or chronology but on artifacts with symbolic purposed or that conveyed meaning to ancient Egyptians.
Absolutely great course, by an expert in his field, dr. David Silverman.
Only minor downside of this great course was the fact, that the credits at the end of each clip was taking very long.
