FULL EPISODE AE03 Title Pic.jpg

In the last episode we discussed Prehistoric Egypt and ended with the small communities along the Nile unifying into two separate kingdoms. In this episode we'll discuss how Egypt became the first nation in history, reveal the first historical document in the world, and show how Egypt unified by following the first pharaohs.

Host David Wainright takes you through the entire timeline - from Prehistoric Times to the death of Cleopatra VIII in 30 B.C. - while focusing on the tombs and temples, the major players who changed the Egyptian world, and on the gods and goddesses that were worshiped by the people who created one of the world's first civilizations.
