A list of a couple if interesting facts of Ancient Egypt.
Gabriel Rodriguez's curator insight, January 22, 2014 2:30 PM

Some "fun" facts about the Ancient Egyptians and the way they live.  These were interesting, particularly the thoery that King Tut may have suffered a traumatic injury at the hands of a hippopatamus.  There is always more history to be discovered and it's great to learn more of the past world.

work than one out??

 

Bobby Savoy's curator insight, January 30, 2014 1:48 AM

Mark Townsend's curator insight, January 31, 2014 7:27 PM

This is a short but sweet article about how ancient egyptians preferred to have sex in the summer time in believing that a flood in the Nile River would bring prosperity to their religion.
