Great Pyramid – A Signature From History.

Sailing southwards on the River Nile in Egypt is like taking a time machine back through ages, through thousands of years of history when the pharaohs ruled the desert land. The impressive ruins of pyramids, temples and tombs are more complete there than in ost places in the ancient world.

The ancient Egyptians diligently maintained the details of their living – household accounts, letters, poems, and excuses for absence from work. A whole learning called Egyptology is devoted to the study of the records and remains of ancient Egypt.

 The hot drifting sands and rainless atmosphere which preserved theses records have preserved much more: the burial pits and rock tombs, the pots and pans, jewelry and furniture, tools and weapons which they used. Even dresses worn by noble ladies 4000 years ago and many more have survived intact. Paintings on the walls of tombs show the owner supervising the activities of his farm laborers or craftsmen, fowling hunting or fishing in the papyrus reed swamps alongside the Nile.

One would wonder why the Egyptians took great trouble and preserved their bodies, their records and the objects of their everyday life. The answer lies in their everyday life. The answer lies in their religion. Herodotus, the Greek historian wrote that the Egyptians are the most religious.
