(20,000 – 2,181 B.C.)

The Story of Early Ancient Egypt, Prehistoric and Old Kingdom Egypt (20,000 to 2,181 B.C.) uniquely focuses on the early ancient Egyptians.

  • 20 full-colour photos of artefacts from the period concerned to aid understanding.
  • Online resources to support use in schools.
  • Maps and text that link ancient Egypt with contemporary societies.
