Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt was a long-lived ancient civilization in north-eastern Africa. It was concentrated along the middle to lower reaches of the Nile River reaching its greatest extension during the second millennium BC, which is referred to as the New Kingdom period.

Ancient Egypt developed over at least three and a half millennia. It began with the incipient unification of Nile Valley polities around 3500 BC and is conventionally thought to have ended in 51 BC when the early Roman Empire conquered and absorbed Ptolemaic Egypt as a province.

The civilization of ancient Egypt was based on a finely balanced control of natural and human resources, characterised primarily by controlled irrigation of the fertile Nile Valley; the mineral exploitation of the valley; the early development of an independent writing system and literature; and military ventures that demonstrated territorial domination of neighbouring cultures at different periods.

Our selection of books about Ancient Egypt are primarily for younger ages (most aimed at the 3rd-5th grade ranges), as many families begin their study of history with the ancients. But, as Egypt is a spiritually dark period, we don't recommend immersing your young children too deeply. There is plenty of material for older students as well.
