    Story
    (231)

    Ancient Egyptian civilization is so grand our minds sometimes have difficulty adjusting to it. It lasted 3,000 years, longer than any other on the planet. Its Great Pyramid of Cheops was the tallest building in the world until well into the 19th century and remains the only Ancient Wonder still standing. And it was the most technologically advanced of the ancient civilizations, with the medical knowledge that made Egyptian physicians the most famous in the world.

    Nassir says: "Incomprehensibly complete"
    "Unlike any course you will ever take!"

    Story
    Would you listen to The History of Ancient Egypt again? Why?

    This one is a definite keeper. I enjoyed these lectures precisely because they were not dry, filled with dates and dull facts. Each lecture told a story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I felt as if I was on a personal tour with Dr. Brier in Egypt as we walked through the museum, the pyramids, Karnak, the Valley of the Kings and Au Simbel.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Bob Brier’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've seen him on various television documentaries on ancient Egypt.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    We are all ancient Egyptians!
