Ancient Egypt Civilisation existed for over three thousand years up to the early centuries of our era. Unique monuments of its architecture, art and literature that had immense influence on world culture have been preserved to our day. The book tells about the Egyptians' remarkable economic, scientific and artistic achievements, about their written language, customs and traditions, and everyday life on the banks of the Nile. Their beliefs conditioned their way of life and distinctive worldview, inspiring creative thinking. The book pays special attention to the impact of Ancient Egypt's cultural heritage on early Christians. The name of the author, Professor Eleonora Kormysheva, is well known to the international community of egyptologists. Her works invariably attract attention of both specialists and the general reader.
