Ancient Egypt will forever be one of the most mysterious and important civilizations the world has ever seen. Arguably the planet’s first great civilization, the Egyptians laid in stone the foundation for modern society, paving the way in engineering, language & religion. Egyptian history is a long and tumultuous one, from the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt in 3100 BC, through several periods of prosperity and near ruin, to the Roman invasion in 30 BC. With each pharaoh attempting to build on their predecessor’s legacy, Egypt exhibits one of the most impressive collections of ruins. Join me on a 3,000-year journey along the Nile and hear my case for what I consider to be one of the greatest historical road trips on earth.
