    While no evidence exists demonstrating that Sinuhe from The Story of Sinuhe is an actual person and while The Tale of the Eloquent Peasant is clearly fiction, both works of Egyptian literature are rooted in some form of historical fact in that they were likely written by Egyptian elite and, therefore, they can give us important insights into Egyptian social life, how Egyptians viewed their society and the greater world, and how different classes in Egypt might have interacted.

    Plovdiv is one of the most ancient cities in Europe. Its history dates as far back as 4000BC. It’s known that Athens is the oldest city, but Plovdiv is even older.

In the United States, I found the Metropolitan Museum of Art presentation of the Temple of Dendur as an example of the internalized exhibition of ancient Egyptian culture in a large-scale urban environment. In a similar manner, the Louvre presents large rooms with Egyptian…

    After reading Sherine El-Menshawy’s article entitled, “Notes on the Human Characteristics of Ancient Egyptian Kings”, I found it very interesting. My reason for that is because there are so many theories and opinions of each King. The reasoning for Sherine’s article to be able to get a closer look at this kings and to show us things about them that we have never seen before. I noticed a lot of insight in the article from different people and historians, especially in the first couple of pages…

I kept thinking about who came up with the idea to build it, what they constructed it to look like, and just how it all came together. 2: I also wanted to know why they went with marble. It’s kind of an odd thought but i kept staring at the stonework and just kept wondering what made the architect chose that stone along with that color of marble and not a different look. Part 2: Find Fifteen (15) artifacts and explain what they were…

    Because I am a Coptic Orthodox Christian, my religion and culture have always been intertwined. However, I used to view my education as apart from them, as there was only one other Copt in my high school and there were none in my elementary or middle school. When I began this semester at NJIT, I realized that I had been missing something for the past thirteen years of my schooling. In just a matter of weeks, I found myself at home within the Coptic community here. I have recognized a few of its…
