Colossal pyramids, imposing temples, golden treasures, enigmatic hieroglyphs, powerful pharaohs, strange gods, and mysterious mummies are features of Ancient Egyptian culture that have fascinated people over the millennia. The Bible refers to its gods, rulers, and pyramids. Neighboring cultures in the ancient Near East and Mediterranean wrote about its god-like kings and its seemingly endless supply of gold.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO ANCIENT EGYPT AND ITS CIVILIZATION
I am glad I took this course! I learned so much about Ancient Egypt and its society, culture, art, and mythology. Kudos to Dr. Silverman and to the University of Pennsylvania for this.
First online course and I loved every moment of it! It felt really refreshing to hear some old names that I used to study as a child. Well done and thanks again for the amazing opportunity!
Very informative course. Dr. Silverman was an excellent lecturer. I appreciated that the back drop for the course was actually the Penn Museum. I wish the course was longer.
The information in this class was good, however, the speaker was boring. I am sure he is a very knowledgeable person on this subject matter, but his delivery needs some improvement.
