Visit tombs, inside and outside that of the Valley of the Kings and Queens (including the Tombs of the Nobles, tombs at Tanis, pyramids, and mummies from both Royal Caches) and animal tombs (especially Apis, Buchis, Mnevis bulls). The site offers a list of gods and looks closer at various dynasties.


The House of Ptolemy
An aid in the study of the Ptolemaic (Macedonian-based Greek), Roman Imperial (Greco-Roman), and Byzantine rulers of Egypt based in Alexandria, this portal site is intended for all classicists and students of Hellenistic history. The House of Ptolemy web site concentrates on the Ptolemies and their world, from 331 - 30 BCE. However, since the histories of Greek rule and subsequent Roman rule overlap (and do so again later with Byzantine rule) this site includes Roman rule in Egypt, and the Byzantine rule that followed. During this almost 1000 years the dominant culture ['Hellenistic'] started as a Greek core with added native Egyptian and other foreign elements. These elements were both blended and kept distinctly separate, sometimes overlying the Greek core incompletely so that today scholars can focus on the Greek facets, the native Egyptian facets, the other outside influences, or all of these together when they discuss The House of Ptolemy and its legacies.

Egypt : Land of the Pharaohs
