A history of ancient Egypt.
More than 10,000 years ago, Egypt was settled by nomads who gathered around the great and mighty Nile River. The bounty of the Nile nourished Egyptians from all walks of life: pharaohs, soldiers, pyramid builders, villagers and farmers. Four comprehensive, colorful stories depict the rise and fall of the great nation of Egypt, from the Old Kingdom to the Roman conquest.

Life along the Nile.
The ancient Egyptians were social, industrious, and devoted to family life, and their communities were close-knit and well organized. We know much about the ways of the ancient Egyptians from studying the hieroglyphics left on their ornate tombs. Seven illustrated stories describe the mysterious land of Egypt, its fascinating people, and their astonishing art and architecture.

Long before the first king of Greece took his throne, Egypt was a great and thriving nation. And the Romans viewed Egypt as "ancient," even in the days of the Roman Empire. The Thomas S. Klise Company CD-ROM program, The Road To Ancient Egypt, uses captivating artwork- combined with a strong and interesting narrative- to trace the history of Ancient Egypt from its earliest settlers, and provides a close-up look at the important people and events of this fascinating civilization. The program also features ancillary activities: anagrams, puzzles, educational games, and projects, all related to the subject of Ancient Egypt.
