Egypt has been the seat of different civilisations since nearly the beginning of human history.

Remnants across the country bear witness of the greatness of its ancients and historical events that changed and enlightened humanity.

Gabriel Rodriguez's curator insight, January 17, 2014 9:30 PM

I think it's cool how we can analyze a mummy and be able to know he was murdered.  This happened thousands of years ago yet we have such insight into what happened in that time period.  I'm sure "Ginger" can rest a little better knowing he has his life story cotinuing today.

Saqqara is renowned for being one of Greater Cairo’s most alluring locations for archaeologists and tourists alike. One of the main reasons many prefer this archaeological site to the Giza Pyramids north of it is that it’s home to antiquities that date from the earlier kings of ancient Egypt all the way to the Greco-Roman period — a time span of almost 3,500 years.
