Egyptian pharaoh, King Tutankhamen, is the most well-known and studied Egyptian pharaoh. It was not until Egyptologist Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter discovered the unmarked tomb in the valley of the Kings in 1922 that anyone knew the young pharaoh. When Carter discovered Tut’s tomb, his tomb was dazzling with golden artifacts capturing the public imagination resulting in one of Egypt most famous and intensively studied mummies. Studying Tut’s tomb has contributed to public’s knowledge of what ancient Egyptian life, culture, and religion were liked. Tutankhamen also known as King Tut, was born in 1341 BC.
The history and tradition of Egypt, which goes back eight thousand years, is one of the most greatly studied and admired of all past world civilizations. Ancient Egyptians have introduced a variety of useful inventions, structures and customs that are studied today. These varieties include the ancient pyramids, their writing of hieroglyphics, leaders of ancient Egypt known as pharaohs and their involved polytheistic religion. One of the most studied traditions is their burial method of mummification. Mummification is a process that was used by the ancient Egyptians for over two thousand years, into the Roman period, to preserve the dead so that they can enter into the afterlife.
Therefore, when the king passed away, his body went through a process of mummification and was placed inside the pyramids. The Great Pyramid at Giza has a triangular shape with a base of 754 feet, a height of 479 feet and it was built of more than 2 million blocks of stone, which was weight around 2.5 tons. About the architectural shape of pyramids, the triangular shape is a very strong shape with a large rectangular base and it get smaller and smaller to the top. With this structure, the pyramid was built to stand strong against mother nature until the modern day today.
South of the pyramid of Menkaure are three satellite pyramids that are each accompanied with a temple and have a substructure. The southernmost is the largest one and a true pyramid. Its casing is partly made of granite, like the main pyramid, and is believed to have been completed due to the limestone pyramidion found close by. Facts and Figures about Menkaure Pyramid Original Height 65.5 meters (215 feet) Current Height 61 meters (204 feet) Base 108.5 meters Angle of Inclination 51°20′25″ Construction Material Granite and limestone Some theories about the Pyramid of Menkaure The pyramid seems to have been unfinished at the death of the king and was completed in mud brick by Menkaure 's son, Shepseskaf, and subsequent additions were built in his
Peter James, who has been studying the construction of the pyramids for more than 20 years, said that under current theories, Egyptians should place a large mass every three minutes on long slopes. It also asserts that the slopes should have been at least a quarter of a mile to get the right angle of the bricks that are taken to such
Upper and Lower Egypt are the other two divisions. Upper and Lower Egypt were important to the acient Egyptians too, The pharaoh owned upper and lower Egypt.The pharaoh was called “ King of the two lands”. A pharaoh is powerful, strong, and had to be responsible. One of the pharaohs name were Thutmose III. Thutmose III was a pharaoh who died in 1481 BC and died in 1425 BC.
Some amazing historical phenomena need explanations like the pyramids in Egypt. Theories still try to imagine and to explain how these incredibly pyramid-shaped buildings were built which proved to be tombs of pharaoh kings. Man is a mighty being who achieved great things since the existence of the world. One of the greatest civilizations I have read about is the Inca Civilization which started in what is called now Peru in Central America. In this research, I am going to talk about a very important part of the Inca Civilization which is the "lost city" of Machu Picchu.
Gems’ mystery drags men from the very beginning of human civilization. As several especialized publications report, they have been treasured since ancient times, considering various minerals have been found out of their natural context in prehistoric sites as Arcy sur Cure (France). Since this perspective, scientists argue men had collected and stored them, in what is known as a primitive collecting stage. Later, men began transforming gemstones to highlight some of their physical characteristics. According to specialized sources, first gems that were known, worked and used as amulets and talismans for its unique beauty and mystique, were garnet amber, amethyst, jade, rock crystals, lapis lazuli, coral, turquoise and emerald.
6). Pottery is regarded as the most visible sign of the presence of old settlement in an area. Pottery is found profoundly in archaeological sites from the Neolithic period throughout the world and its various functions, its transportability, and its infinitive forms and decorations make pottery a very complex tool for defining stylistic changes through time and for tracing cultural relations. Archaeologists use pottery to decode how various areas within the archaeological site was used. For example, one would expect to find high density of pottery in a food preparation or cooking area, but would not expect to find large number of it in sleeping
