Destony Buckley's insight:

This is such an amazing video I learned a lot. Burying Egyptians was a very long process which contained 70 days. When the epyptians was buried they took all their internal organs out except for the heart. They were also buried with their personal tools.

Mark Townsend's curator insight, January 31, 2014 7:16 PM

This article explains how powerful women could be in ancient egypt. It gives good insight of how certain women were looked at like Godesses. Cleopatra was one of the most powerful women to fight for her superior position

Kristine Rapisura's curator insight, February 8, 2014 2:17 AM

It's interesting to here that ancient egyptian women were seen as equal to men. Although not many ruled as a Pharaoh, Hatshepsut was one of the few who did. She built temples and other public buildings in efforts to build her city. 

Destiny Silva's curator insight, April 21, 2014 4:13 PM

instead of history its her story. It shows what woman like Cleopatra had to deal with.
